Terri Schiavo should have been a horse His biggest legislative regret?
He said he wished he had spoken out when Republican lawmakers tried to stop the severely brain-damaged woman's husband from removing her feeding tube in 2005.Jill finds Obama's compassion much greater for the furry four legged creatures
"It wasn't something I was comfortable with, but it was not something that I stood on the floor and stopped, and I think that was a mistake.''
It's really too bad Terri wasn't a horse....Yikes! Scary material for our future president.
As both state and U.S. senator, Obama either supported or co-sponsored measures to stop horse slaughter, particularly since there is a horse factory in IL.
Terri would also have been better off a dog as far as Obama is concerned, because he has supported a legislative crack-down on dog fighting.
