McCain Seizes Abortion Issue

Good on 'im! From McCain's radio address this week (Curtsy: Weekly Standard):
For a man who talks so often about "hope," Senator Obama doesn't offer much of it in meeting this great challenge to the conscience of America. His extreme advocacy in favor of partial birth abortion and his refusal to provide medical care for babies surviving abortion should be of grave concern to reasonable people of goodwill on both sides of this issue. There is a growing consensus in America that we need to overcome narrow partisanship on this issue for both women in need and the unborn. We need more of the compassion and moral idealism that my opponent's own party, at its best, once stood for. No one is above the law, and no one is beneath its protection.
It's important this be said. It's very encouraging that McCain's hitting hard on an issue he normally doesn't like to tackle. And this makes it very hard for him to choose a pro-choice veep, I hope.

Meanwhile, Obama's chosen Joe Biden. Cue James Brown, at least for today, I feel good.
