Obama's response about Choice

I want to take this opportunity to speak directly to those of you who oppose my decision to support the Abortion compromise.
Democracy cannot exist without strong differences. And going forward, some of you may decide that my women's reproductive rights position is a deal breaker. That's ok. But I think it is worth pointing out that our agreement on the vast majority of issues that matter outweighs the differences we may have on a few issues like the constitution, warrantless wiretapping, telecom immunity, abortion rights, gun rights, separation of church & state, refining the Iraq policy and the death penalty. After all, the choice in this election could not be clearer. You have no option but to vote for me. Ha Ha.
So I appreciate the feedback through my.barackobama.com, and I look forward to continuing the conversation in the months and years to come. Together, we have a lot of work to do. The work is to make me Supreme Commander, so that I no longer have to pretend to notice your existence & reply to your online petitions & stuff.
