Hear hear, Sen. Obama, for deciding not to use the announcement of Palin's 17-year-old daughter's pregnancy for political advantage. I hope young Miss Palin gets through this already difficult situation okay.
A female Republican delegate was quoted by CNN saying: "I have a 17-year-old daughter, and they start making choices without us. I appreciate the choice she is making to have the baby, but it just makes her a real person. It happens every day in America." It seems to me the operative word here is CHOICE.
That CHOICE is important to all women--not just the V.P.-candidate's kid.
