    Flip flop? Naw, just yielding to reality.

    "All 191 United Nations members are agreed on the need for a treaty that would prohibit cloning human beings, but they have been stalled for three years by sharp differences over whether to broaden the ban, as the United States wishes, to cover therapeutic cloning."

    I'm glad it worked out as it has. I'm at odds with those against therapeutic cloning...

    Ah yes, you-know-who is a flip-flopper, Bush is just a yielder-to-reality. Is there any practical difference?

    I wonder how the Christian right feels about this?

    mac, seems to me there's a difference between quitting a fight you can't win, and offering conflicting views on a subject.

    Have you ever proposed some action to a group and had them turn you down? If you then abide by that group's views, are you "flip-flopping"? I doubt your own views have actually changed.

    As for the Christian right, "Hey, live with it."
