It's a Matter of Choice

I'm with Digby:

This is it. The Obama campaign is going on the offensive with a flat out liberal appeal on a culture war issue. No more mushy post partisan nonsense.

I am very, very impressed:
Barack Obama has launched a broadside against John McCain’s opposition to abortion rights and moved one of the most divisive issues in modern American politics to the airwaves on a large scale for the first time in this presidential campaign....
Richard Land says that picking Palin has given a shot of Red Bull to the Republican base. Well, Obama has just given me a triple shot of espresso with that ad. Let's roll.
I've heard about Obama's Choice-driven ad campaign for a couple of days now, and I've been holding off to see if it's really real. But, given what I've seen from Obama since the convention, it does seem like he's taking a more energetic approach to issues that he's been vague and subtle about in the past. And when Obama mentioned abortion directly in his nomination acceptance speech on Thursday, I suspected he was prepared to do the same with Choice. Republicans have been telegraphing their intent to use this specific wedge issue to drive out their base for several months now. And rather than hedge or play defense, Obama goes directly on the offense. Even before the Republicans completely solidify their rabidly dogmatic right-to-birth platform. An aggressive Obama is a good Obama.

Fired up! Ready to go!
