Run Hillary Run: 2008

Well folks, its time for another RWP recurring feature. I've decided to entitle this one, "Run Hillary Run: 2008" and it will predominantly serve to track the calculated moves of Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton as she manuevers herself for the Democratic ticket of 08. Keeping in mind that she's stragically placed herself further to the right of the President on immigration and national security, it will be interesting to see what she does next.

Here's a taste from powerline:

In a speech to about 1,000 abortion rights supporters near the New York State Capitol, Mrs. Clinton firmly restated her support for the Supreme Court's ruling in Roe v. Wade, which legalized abortion nationwide in 1973. But then she quickly shifted gears, offering warm words to opponents of legalized abortion and praising the influence of "religious and moral values" on delaying teenage girls from becoming sexually active.
"There is an opportunity for people of good faith to find common ground in this debate - we should be able to agree that we want every child born in this country to be wanted, cherished and loved," Mrs. Clinton said.
Mrs. Clinton's remarks were generally well received, though the audience was silent during most of her overtures to anti-abortion groups. Afterward, leaders of those groups were skeptical, given Mrs. Clinton's outspoken support for abortion rights over the years.
