Pondering the Biden Clinton Shuffle

There’s some low-level murmuring going on that Barack Obama may drop Joe Biden like a hot potato and choose Hillary Clinton as a replacement VP nominee. While I heard a little bit of this kind of amused speculation this weekend at the Values Voter Summit, none of it seemed too serious or concerned. I think […]

McCain Coming Out Stronger Against Roe

The only major area where pro-lifers have been discontent with John McCain–within that issue–is embryonic stem cell research. McCain supports it, while pro-lifers rightly point out that it involves the intentional destruction of innocent human life.
