If the problem with fundamentalists is that they impose their rules on others, you might also ask yourself, What rules do I impose? For example, you opposed federal funding of abortion.
I did everything I possibly could to minimize abortion and to discourage abortion while still complying with the law as ordained by the Supreme Court.
But it seems like this is one of those areas where it’s difficult to draw the line. You believe you know the will of God.
If I were a purist in my faith, I couldn’t hold public office and preside over a nation that honored abortion. But when I went into politics and I ran for office, I was willing as a state senator and as a governor and as a president to take an oath before God that I would uphold the laws of the districts that I served. There were times when I was able to change the laws. But until they were changed, I had to comply with them. So when people have asked me about this, I always tell them that this was the most difficult issue I had to face, because I was inherently against abortion, but I was required to impose the law.

The other two bodies of government stood by silently while Bush dismantled the Constitution. What makes anyone think they will be different with Obama?
