South Carolina Democratic chairwoman Carol Fowler told a Politico reporter today that Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., had chosen a running mate" whose primary qualification seems to be that she hasn't had an abortion."
Fowler has issued a statement, saying, "I personally admire and respect the difficult choices that women make everyday, and I apologize to anyone who finds my comment offensive. I clumsily was making a point about people in South Carolina who may vote based on a single issue. Whether it’s the environment, the economy, the war or a woman’s right to choose, there are people who will cast their vote based on a single issue. That was the only point I was attempting to make."

Well I doubt she would have been chosen for the Republican ticket if she had an abortion.
The title to this thread is misleading. In fact, it's just plain, not true. I know the S.C. Democratic chairwoman said it, but the title here makes it sound like that was the reason she was chosen.
Are there any issues in this campaign at all?? Or is foot-in-mouth disease breaking out along the campaign trail??
