    She would have been an excellent and decisive President.

  2. This woman is a beacon of hope in US politics. Her official position is that she does’t suppoort gay marriage however I get the impression that that’s only because you can’t support gay marriage if you want to become president and that if she could support it, she would. Regardles though, she is a true beacon of LGBT rights and is a fantastic politician, thank you Ms. Clinton.

    “…gays and lesbians many of whom can now live their lives are free to live their lives openly and proudly.”"

    Yeah but not equal. Nor in the armed services.

    I admire what Hillary Clintion is doing though.

  4. Mrs Clinton has always been a friend of the LGBT community; can’t help but wish she was the President! Thanks Mrs C!

  5. Great PR.

    This is the person I supported for the Democrating nomination for President in 2008. When Obama won the nomination, I dutifully got on board. Thank you Hillary. Obama is trying to end DADT through legislative means which would be more powerful than doing it through the courts, because it can easily be reversed if not done legislatively. Good luck with that. I’ll believe it when it happens. In the meanwhile, Obama/Hillary – 2012!!!

    Hillary should say, “Hang on there!” 15 years and it still hasn’t gotten better. Matter of fact, torture is in the agenda. see http://judiciary.zoomshare.com/files/ShocksConscience.pdf

  8. I absolutely applaud any effort to support anyone who is suffering abuse because of their sexuality, but thoughts and prayers from an ivory tower mean hee-haw Mrs Clinton. The message needs to be balanced that it can get better because it does not always, and as a mental helath professional I have councelled teenagers and adults who have suffered homophibic bullying and then found that coming out was a huge dissapointment and the gay community was not waiting with open arms or support to welcome them. It is a start but lets take off the rose tinted glasses and look at what more we as gay men and women can do locally to help those who are in despair to come and find a sympathetic ear and feel comfortable with being who they are.
