The reason I felt the Holy Spirit at work is that Cdl. Dolan was in a situation where everyone is polarized and demonizes the opposition, and usually in that situation the speaker, especially if he's a religious personage, takes the irenic route--skirts around the real conflict and uses fuzzy language. By the usual rules, his words should have stirred up nasty feelings, not tears. He even used the words "the unborn," ordinarily guaranteed to cause conflict.

It does look like a movement of the Holy Spirit, right in the middle of politics as usual. And it was just because he didn't take the usual niceness at all costs route, but spoke the truth in true charity, that this could happen. I don't think any amount of cleverness could produce those tears.
