Andrew Spencer reporting Presidential hopeful Mitt Romney was moved to tears talking about his religion during an appearance on NBC's "Meet the Press," but faith wasn't the only topic he covered.

Clips of past speeches emphasize Romney's change in position regarding abortion, but he didn't run from it. "I recognize it's a change. My position was effectively pro-choice, and every piece of legislation which came to my desk in the coming years as a governor I came down on the side of preserving the sanctity of life," he said.

He even had the opportunity to take a shot at Mike Huckabee after Huckabee called President Bush's foreign policy arrogant. "Mike Huckabee should apologize to the president," Romney said. "That's the same as saying the president is arrogant and [has] bunker mentality. That's where he went over the line."

When asked if Romney could beat his rival in Iowa, he said, "I sure hope so. I'm workin' hard."

Romney also said he opposes the creation of embryos for embryonic stem-cell research, and he did his best to clarify his positions on gun control and immigration as well.
