When he was running for president, Bill Clinton's position on abortion was that he wanted to make sure that it was "safe, legal and rare."
Two out of three isn't bad.
Sen. Barack Obama last week tried his hand at pivoting toward the center on abortion when he came out and said that the "mental health exception" to late-term abortions -- which is the loophole big enough to make the exception the rule -- should require some mental illness more serious than the mother just feeling "blue."
Despite what the media tends to report, the vast majority of Americans agree with that position -- but the "pro-choice," abortion-on-demand left doesn't.
Which caused Obama to pivot back.
National Review's Ramesh Ponnuru outlines Obama's political history on the abortion issue here and comes to the conclusion: "Is he the most pro-abortion nominee ever? He at least ties."
Anything Obama says different is just a smokescreen.
