Hillary Clinton and Abortion

As reported in this article from the New York Times(free registration required) Senator Hillary Clinton is making an attempt to convince pro-lifers that there is common ground between them and the pro-abortion crowd. (Note on the terminology: I'm being exactly as fair as media sources (like the Star Tribune) who routinely use the terms "anti-abortion" and "pro-choice" to describe the two groups - ed.) I'm not going to try to guage her sincerity (or lack of it) or her motives (genuine, or political, etc.). I just have two questions for the pro-abortion/pro-choice folk:

1. What legal restrictions on abortion will the pro-choice people be willing to accept?

2. Will pro-choicers accept Supreme Court justices that would allow legal restrictions on abortion to actually be enforced?
