McCain: Abortion Rights Veep Possible

Ad Feedback

Republican presidential candidate John McCain is floating the idea of picking a running mate who supports abortion rights.

The Arizona senator says pro-choice candidates should not be excluded from higher office.

"I think it's a fundamental tenet of our party to be pro-life but that does not mean we exclude people from our party that are pro-choice," McCain said.

McCain says he opposes abortion and calls it "one of the most important, fundamental issues of the Republican Party."

Meanwhile, Democrats are dealing with some unity problems of their own. Some of Hillary Clinton's supporters plan on protesting the upcoming Democratic convention.

They say there were irregularities during the electoral process. And they are demanding that Clinton be included in a roll-call vote for the nomination.

Senator Clinton has endorsed Illinois Senator Barack Obama for the party's nomination. Clinton will have a prime time speaking role at the convention.
