wtf?

come on, this really isn't for political promotion. and, if you're gonna, at least give us some reasons why we should support Hillary in '08. If you have do it... at least do it right.

wtf?

Why is this NOT a place for political promotion? Who really cares?

It's a gay site, there's going to be politics going around here.

I do agree with you, however, that there needs to be some reasoning behind why you think people should vote for Hillary. Tell us what her views are, and especially (since this is a gay site) tell us her views on gay marriage.

I support Whatever democrat

I support Whatever democrat comes into the presidential race. Until then, I see no point in donating money so the people i support can fight themselves. Even so, It's not like I have a lot of money to donate right now :-(.

Hmm...

Not sure yet. I'm listening to Barack Obama's audiobook, though, and I like what I hear.

Obama

I prefer Obama to Hillary because he is by far a better speaker, he has that spark around people that Hillary (as much as I love her as a Senator) just doesn't have.
But really, I'd rather have Al Gore.
Sure, he can be stiff at times, but as far as policy goes, he's really the best out there in the Progressive spectrum that could win.

I decided to take a peek in the closet.
What a suprise to find myself hiding inside!

Read About Ron Paul

Ron Paul's Republican in name only. He's the best thing that could happen for the country. Provided they don't kill him, that is. Honest politicians don't fare too well in the game of longevity. Hillary is on the dangerous side.
On the other hand, Bush makes Hitler look good.

I do a lot of political research. Check out rumormillnews.com, truthout.com, surfingtheapocalpse.com, rense.com and whatever links to whatever other alternative news sources they provide about him.

Hilary

I do support Hillary I've got to admit. Obama just doesn't have the experience. Next time around, maybe. But he just hasn't done enogh yet

Obama is an excellent

Obama is an excellent speaker. Not enough experience though, and is not for gay marriage and all. Get your facts checked out. Hillary is not all gay friendly either.

The best bet was to be Vilsack. He dropped out because he didn't have enough money. Look him up. He would have been excellent. The perfect transition we would need between Bush and a more liberal president.

Tom Vilsack from Iowa yeah?

Tom Vilsack from Iowa yeah? He is a good guy :)

Who is?

Who is that gay friendly? WE need to stop holding out for the gay-friendly messiah that would somehow get elected and just supoort someone who gives at least some rights

on the one hand, I feel a bit obligated to vote for Hil as shes a woman and i'm a woman and i'm all about the promotion of women but on the other hand she has moved so far center from her far left beginnings which makes her ideals not mesh with mine anymore. As far as Obama is concerned, he reps my home state and his political agenda is more closely related to mine. It will be a tough decision this year.

Experience...

It seems that the more experience you have, the more they use it against you. Vote against a pork-laden defense appropriations bill, you're soft on defense. Hell, McCain voted against a bill last time around that had some rider attached to give money to fund breast cancer research, and they said he was against breast cancer research.

That's why there are more governors and mayors in the race anymore, less stuff to bring up against them in the race.

Of course our rights are important, but what might be more tragic is if we only support them narrowly and blindly ignore the (often greater) injustices happening here and in the world. Clearly gay rights should be fought for; but what about the Iraq war, or the widening class gap, or education in the United States, or the genocide in Darfur, or nuclear weapons in Iran and North Korea, or global warming, or the nascent global water crisis? What about overpopulation and conspicuous consumption and the United States' gargantuan ecological footprint?

If we only focus on ourselves, there won't be a world to get married, adopt kids, even get beaten up in. Maybe it shouldn't be our only criteria for selecting a candidate. As backward as the situation is, a lot of the country isn't ready to hear it yet, though they can hear war and violence loud and clear.

From what I have read,

From what I have read, Hillary has been opposed to bills that ban gay marriage. Maybe, with her as President, we will finally have someone who will hear us and make an unbiased decision about gay marriage.

Yeah...

She is also opposed to bills to legalize gay marriage. I don't think any Democrat running has publicly supported gay marriage.

Dennis Kucinich...

"I believe that equality of opportunity should be afforded to all Americans regardless of race, color, creed or sexual orientation. For that reason I support the right of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered persons to have the full protections and rights afforded under civil law including the right to marry the person of their choice."

I really like this man. Unfortunately, he's a major, major long shot.

Oh yeah...

I always forget about him, since well... it's not going to happen. A pro-gay vegan? If you stop right there it is too much for most people, and his list of qualifiers goes on and on...

Gays in the Military

In last night's Democratic debate, Hillary stood up for gays and lesbians and said that we should have the right to join the military openly if we want to.
