— In an hour-long speech at NYU law school yesterday, Al Gore (D) called dealing with global warming "a moral issue," the Washington Post writes.  "Gore noted that few politicians of any party are willing to step into the 'no politician zone' of tough steps needed to address global warming." 

Sen. John Kerry (D), addressing Pepperdine students yesterday, called for a "national commitment to reduce the number of abortions" -- echoing sentiments expressed by another presidential contender, Sen. Hillary Clinton (D).  The Boston Globe says Kerry's speech was the "most extensive attempt to describe his religious views and define where he stands on so-called 'values issues' since President Bush defeated him for the presidency in 2004."
