Clinton’s Double Take:

A week after his party took a drubbing from voters who cited “moral values” as their top issue, former President Bill Clinton–no moral champion–started sounding vaguely (but only vaguely) like a Zell Miller-type convert.

“There was an astonishing turnout among evangelical Christians who said they were voting on the basis of moral values,” Clinton said at Hamilton College in upstate New York. “I think the current divisions are partly the fault of me . . . of people in my party for not engaging the Christian evangelical community in a serious discussion of what it would take to promote a real culture of life and what the best strategy for reducing abortions is, or open discussion of where we are on the issue of gays in America.” As President, Clinton twice vetoed the partial-birth abortion ban.
