Returning Senator Mark Dayton to the Ranks of the Idle Rich in 2006

Dayton Didn't Get the Memo

Sunday's Boston Globe contained this story on a "big tent" approach to the abortion issue for the Democrats in an attempt to glean some red state voters:

WASHINGTON -- Leading Democrats, stung by election losses, are signaling they want the party to embrace antiabortion voters and candidates, softening the image of the party from one fiercely defensive of abortion rights to one that acknowledges the moral and religious qualms some Americans have about the issue.
House minority leader Nancy Pelosi, a California Democrat who is one of the most ardent supporters of abortion rights in Congress, has encouraged Tim Roemer, a former representative with a strong voting record against abortion, to run for the chairmanship of the Democratic National Committee. The Democrats' new Senate minority leader, Harry Reid of Nevada, opposes abortion rights.

Senator Dayton -- not to be deterred -- has consistently voted lock-step with the abortion industry during his tenure by garnering a perfect 100% rating from both NARAL and Planned Parenthood. This includes his proud votes in defense of partial-birth abortion.
