I can only IMAGINE the response in the news and all over right-wing TV and radio if Obama had a 17 year-old, unwed and pregnant daughter. Let's face it, Democrats once again are warned to not say anything. Yet if this were an Obama baby, the hypocritical repubs would be all over it, salivating on Faux News.

Obama Says He Doesn't Want His Daughters Punished with a BabyMarch 31, 2008
At a town hall meeting in Johnstown, Pennsylvania on Saturday afternoon, Barack Obama told the crowd that he didn't want his daughters, "punished with a baby". Watch the comments here and read the transcript below:
"When it comes specifically to HIV/AIDS, the most important prevention is education, which should include -- which should include abstinence education and teaching the children -- teaching children, you know, that sex is not something casual. But it should also include -- it should also include other, you know, information about contraception because, look, I've got two daughters. 9 years old and 6 years old. I am going to teach them first of all about values and morals. But if they make a mistake, I don't want them punished with a baby.
