As big an issue as abortion is, the President has almost no influence over it other than Supreme Court appointees.

I'm sure that comment will win him some points with the voters though.

The race for President is a contest to see who can pander to the greatest number of stupid people.

I get irritated listening to the promises and politics. Think of me what you will, but I don't vote, especially for the president. If I cared who was president, I probably would, but politics just isn't my thing.

Maybe if I had the time to actually research the issues myself, I'd care more about what the candidates have to say about them. I dunno. But anywho, I don't vote.

There are exceptions though. For example, if Congress offered a public ballot to decide when THEY get a raise, I'd certainly vote then.

They do. No Congressional pay raises go into effect until after the next election.

They almost never vote to raise their salaries, though. When was the last time they did?

Yup. They'll shorten everything down to a few sound bytes that sound good.
Let the insanity begin.

The Supreme Court is where the battle is taking place. People on the other hand like to know where their president or president hopefuls stand on this and other issues before they vote so all the politicians have to run to middle or at least as close as they can. Sen. Clinton has been doing some changes on her platform this weekend funny how those stripes can change color.
