Gloria Feldt of Planned Parenthood has some advice for the Democratic Party.

If you have a few spare moments today-- I know we're all busy-- here's your research assignment:

• Find a campaign speech in which a Republican candidate-- any Republican candidate-- spoke exclusively-- no, make that mainly-- about abortion.


• Find a speech by Gloria Feldt in which she didn't speak mainly-- if not exclusively-- about abortion.
