Fred Thompson Would Make Some Major Moves
 
Likely Republican White House hopeful Fred Thompson told CNN Friday that he would work to overturn Roe v. Wade if elected president, and would push for a constitutional amendment that protects states from being forced to honor gay marriages performed in other states.

1. How can you be a "likely hopeful?' Is he not certain that he's hopeful?

2. Roe v. Wade isn't law, it's Constitutional interpretation. That is something the President has absolutely no authority over. He's right, but his blustering about it is meaningless.

3. Quit calling it "gay marriage." Marriage between two gay people is legal in all 50 states. What everybody is in a huff over is "same-sex marriage."

I like Fred Thompson, but I don't think he'd make much of a President. Truthfully, I haven't seen anybody (yet) that I think would.

Fred Thompson is a good actor and he might even look the part of President but I know very little about his platform. I agree with you post Joe :D Did a chuck of concrete hit you in the head this weekend ?

Yeah but the President appoints Supreme Court judges whose job it is to interpret the constitution. (wink wink)

So I'm wondering can hermaphrodites marry either sex? Or must they marry another hermaphrodite to be legal in all states?
