This attack mailer from Hillary Clinton’s campaign appeared in some New Hampshire mailboxes in the last few days. The flyer questions Barack Obama’s pro-choice credentials, citing seven “present” votes he cast in the Illinois state Legislature. The implication is that Obama lacked the courage to stand up to the anti-abortion crowd.
What the mailer leaves out is that pro-choice leaders in Illinois asked legislators to vote “present” viewing the bills in question as cheap election-year stunts from anti-abortion politicians, and that Planned Parenthood leaders from Illinois have defended Obama against Clinton’s attacks on the votes.
