While the tactic has produced results Gore was forced to acknowledge that he's changed his opinion on the issue it may not amount to much. Bradley's hope is that he can take what is essentially a small matter and inflate it to portray Gore as an inconsistent, untrustworthy politician, which could be a tough row to hoe. While Gore may have differed from his party during his early years in Congress, people are permitted to change their views. And it wasn't as though he got religion on the matter just last week.
And, in fact, abortion-rights groups like NOW and NARL say they're equally comfortable with Gore and Bradley. And this is Bradley's problem in a nutshell: He's perceived to be essentially the same candidate as Gore, only less so. Despite the increasing bitterness of their exchanges, the two Democrats hold basically the same views and Gore's got all the advantages of incumbency to boot. Which leaves Bradley trailing in the polls as the New Hampshire primary approaches, and still looking for an effective angle.
