Obama's position that Bristol Palin's pregnancy, and indeed any family stuff, is out of bounds is the right path. I applaud his decency. There are plenty of real issues for the candidates to debate.
Of course, that doesn't stop folks like me from pointing out the glaring absurdity of "abstinence" programs. Uhm, teenagers will
have sex. They're hormone machines. And if they don't use contraceptives, "complications" like this will arise.
