“Cautiously Optimistic”

After seeing what the fallout has been regarding President Obama’s speech I’ve seen several people who would never think about being supportive of the President speaking at a Catholic school now saying that they are “cautiously optimistic” about the possibility of Catholics working alongside him to limit abortions. I find this to be sound discernment and even mature. Let’s face facts, we really don’t have much history of any President really helping us change the minds of women–even though some have worked on the legislative element of this issue. President Obama’s overture seems to be breaking new ground–and that, as Catholics, should give us hope.
