I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK
If I had to wager who has the best chance of getting the GOP nomination in 2016 this far out, it would have been Portman even before this.
I think politicians who don't come to these conclusions until someone close to them comes out lack empathy.
What crack's me up most about this thread is that people seem to be more concerned with him being called a RHINO by members here than scoring another win for SSM. What a bunch of numbskulls. I mean I am a conservative and a Christian, and I support SSM so WTF.
No Lives Matter
I find his change of heart appalling. I didn't care for him before and now I really don't like him. Why is it that now (2yrs ago) that he has a gay son, now all of a sudden he's for gay marriage. Why couldn't he have said that when he was a potential VP candidate? Because he felt it would automaticly eliminate his chance of becoming VP. Personally I have no problem with gay marriage....to each his own. Who cares who is with who....as long as you love and care for each other. My question is this. Does every anti-gay politician have to have a gay family member come out in order for them to become rational politician? If that's the case every politician in DC should have an immediate family member join the military. And let's see have soon these wars would end. Pretty quick I'd imagine.
