The McCain campaign is running an ad featuring Debra Bartoshevich, a female Hillary Clinton delegate to the Democratic convention who says that she will be voting for McCain, and encourages other Democrats to do the same.
But when asked how someone like her who is pro-choice could vote for McCain, she said that as far as she knew, McCain was against overturning Roe v. Wade. I guess she hasn’t looked at McCain’s website, where he declares that he will do everything he can to overturn Roe v. Wade, including appointing anti-choice Supreme Court justices. Or his recent interview at Saddleback church where he said “I have a 25- year pro-life record in the Congress, in the Senate. And as president of the United States, I will be a pro-life president. And this presidency will have pro-life policies.”
Watch Rachael Maddow:
Surveys show that quite a few women are not aware that McCain has a 0% rating on pro-choice issues. As Rachael Maddow says, that’s stuuu…pendous!
