On Fox News' O'Reilly Factor tonight, ABC's This Week anchor George Stephanopoulos was on to discuss the state of the Democratic Party.
"So, there is a very strong, moderate faction in the Democratic party," show host Bill O'Reilly said. "However speaker after speaker after speaker [at the Democratic convention] was very far left. Did that surprise you?"
Stephanopoulos, who served as the communications director in the Clinton administration, said that the abortion issue, a recurring topic at the convention, "energizes a lot of people in the Democratic Party."
O'Reilly then asked specifically about unrestricted access to abortion. "That's what [pro-choice group] NARAL wants, that's what Sandra Fluke wants..." O'Reilly said.
"I think when that element of the Democratic Party kind of takes over, I think it does have the possibility of hurting Democrats in the general election," Stephanopoulos said.
