Stephanopoulos: In the ad now running in Missouri, Jim Caviezel speaks in Aramaic. It means, “You betray me with a kiss.” And his position, his point, is that actually even though down in Missouri they say the initiative is against cloning, it’s actually going to allow human cloning.
Fox: Well, I don’t think that’s true. You know, I campaigned for Claire McCaskill. And so I have to qualify it by saying I’m not qualified to speak on the page-to-page content of the initiative. Although, I am quite sure that I’ll agree with it in spirit, I don’t know, I— On full disclosure, I haven’t read it, and that’s why I didn’t put myself up for it distinctly.
THE CATHOLIC KNIGHT: Ah but Michael, you did put yourself up for Claire McCaskill distinctly, and you did so quite distinctly on the grounds that she supports the human-cloning embryonic stem-cell initiative (i.e. "Amendment 2"). You also quite distinctly put yourself up against Jim Talent, once again quite distinctly, on the grounds that he opposes the human-cloning stem-cell initiative (i.e. "Amendment 2"). So in your campaigning for Claire McCaskill on this issue, you have quite distinctly (intended or not) given a blanket approval to the human-cloning stem-cell initiative known as "Amendment 2." Believe me Michael, that's EXACTLY how the voters in Missouri took it, since that is the defining issue on the ballot in Missouri, not the senatorial race between Talent and McCaskill.
