The Dems as a party will NEVER come out as pro-life. It goes against everything the base stands for. They want abortion on demand in a no fault world. If you hold your breath waiting for this to happen, you'll pass out.
Second, the Dems will never support the military the way that most Americans think they need supported. Again, this goes against everything the base stands for. Not that the Repubs have done a bang up job in the last 8 years mind you. But the Dems would rather young people join AmeriCorps, City Year, ACORN, and other organizations that they can control rather than the military that answers to a higher legal and ethical authority.
