Nader, Schiavo, and Compassion

Great post today from Althouse cutting through the partisan debate about Ralph Nader's support of Terry Schiavo's parents' rights to legal guardianship. The key question: Why are both sides of our political spectrum selectively compassionate?

Ambivablog discusses the Nader viewpoint here, and brings in a sobering insight from Jewish law, about the nature of responsibility, here.
