Time Editor: Hillary Clinton a 'Moral Conservative'
View video here.
TUCKER CARLSON: What are her core beliefs?
AMY SULLIVAN: On foreign policy, she is a little more hawkish than the rest of the Democratic Party, and certainly more than the primary base is. It seems that on social issues, by which I mean kind of welfare and economic issues [economic issues are social issues?], she's fairly liberal. But she's a moral conservative. Which is to say that she also gets behind, you know, things like values issues. She's endorsed a plan to lower abortion rates that actually just passed through the House and Senate conference committee this week.I was curious to find out more about Sullivan's background. A Googling reveals that she's been a member of "Faithful Democrats" and the "Progressive Faith Media" where her bio states that she formerly served as an "aid" [sic -- at least we hope so] to Senator Tom Daschle.
TUCKER CARLSON: She also has come out in support of partial-birth abortion, against the vast majority of Americans, at least as measured by poll numbers. So that suggests that's an issue she really believes in.
SULLIVAN: But she also stood up to the choice community a few years ago and declared that abortion was a tragedy.
CARLSON: Hmm. Well, that's not, I mean, her husband has said the same thing. That's not really standing up-
SULLIVAN: "Safe, legal and rare," but she was the one who started it, safe, legal and rare first.
CARLSON: Has she ever suggested placing any restriction of any kind on abortion, limiting for instance abortion for sex selection? Or any restriction, of any kind. Ever? I must have missed it. Has she?
SULLIVAN: I think she's focused more on preventing unwanted pregnancies and providing support for women who are pregnant and want to have their babies but aren't sure that they can afford it.
