I try to follow USA policy from my country, France, and i've actually these interrogations:

First, how does Hillary Clinton speacks to the evangelicals? Does she promises things? same questions for Obama.

Then, if Hillary Clinton takes the nomination for 2008 and if she goes to White House, won't it drives democrat party definitly on the right for moral values? So that making the two parties (GOP and democrat) on the right and making no more choice in the future on these values.

Thancks for answers

Hillary Clinton doesn't say much to the evangelicals one way or the other. She knows she won't get any votes from them because they are ultra-conservative, and they regard her and her husband as incarnations of evil. Don't ask me why. Obama doesn't have anything to do with them either, for much the same reasons.

Her nomination wouldn't move the Democratic party to the right, left, or much of anywhere on "moral values," because her views are pretty much in sync on them with what the majority of Democrats favor. Her election would definitely move them to the left of what they are now.

Obama and Clinton having been making some overtures to the religious right mostly because the Republicans have failed to put forth a candidate that social conservatives can rally around.  As a result, Democrats are trying to play up other issues such as helping the poor that are also important to people with strong faith.  Clinton isn't going to make any concessions to them on social issues though.  A Clinton presidency will not mean a move to the right for Democrats.

That last sentence should have read that her election would move the White House to the left of where it is now.
