I doubt any American has ever elected a President who agreed with that American on every issue. I really don't CARE what a candidate's personal position is on abortion or the death penalty or guns or gay marriage or evolution/creationism or any other controversial topic that gets tossed around on message boards.
What I want to know is if the candidate believes it is the federal government's prerogative to order such things. If he does, even if I agree with his position, I will consider him unsuitable for office. If he does not, then we're good to go.
