    True, but the insinuation made he was merely coming out of the closet and it had nothing to do with being republican. My assertion was he was probably afraid to previously because of the "small tent" the the republicans have, as they historically have not and still aren't as supportive of gays as the left is. Hence the term "small tent." You asked why the hate? What hate?

    What does that have to do with the fact that there are very few differences between the dems and reps on the issue of gay rights as a whole?

    Mehlman's said that he only recently came to this realization, so I don't think that's the issue.

    Reminder: Dick Cheney is more supportive of gay rights than Barack Obama.
    This is true, he also doesn't have to worry about votes anymore.

    All I am saying is Republicans are very good at getting people to rally around a cause no matter how good or bad it may be, so why not get them to rally around the cause of gay marriage, "don't ask don't tell" and then we have what essentially are 2 "non-issues" out of the way compared to things that truly effect every American including the economy, war on terror, taxes, etc?

    Just out of curiosity...what is Bill Clintons stance on gay marriage? What is Barrack Obamas stated position on gay marriage?

    Damn piece of **** homophobic democrats...

    As I said in an earlier post, it seems that anyone that becomes president gets default answers on certain issues because they don't want to be seen as to liberal. Unless Obama changes his mind here shortly, I guarantee you when he is out of office his stance on the issue of gay marriage will change.

    Anyways, good on him. I can't imagine how hard it must be to live a lie.
    That's exactly what I was thinking. What a relief this must be.
