No, Hillary, you are NOT my girl, yet. You have the experience and the machine to achieve everything GLBT need, but you sound scripted. When the field narrows and you are in the top 2 at the end of the primaries, I will look at you again as the lesser of the bad choices – Ron Paul appears to more liberal than Richardson, but again there is the electability factor. I like Kucinich, Gravel, Obama, and Edwards. Guess which one will make it to the finals.

Hillary … “I’m your girl” but can you step back and be president? Xena should remain a warrior, but not Queen! Her experience and strong voice has everyone’s attention. Her failure to apologize outright for her war stance reminds me of Bush. NO NO don’t brush the same sex issue onto the states … they didn’t push civil rights onto the states. Nothing will happen until the federal policies demand equality for all. Using states rights are too convenient way of back peddling! Take a federal position!

Bye Bye Richardson. Just don’t get it do you? Gay is not a choice!

Richardson, used to be fond of this guy until another blogger living in NM filled me in on his inadequate handling of the state. Reminding the public about his experiences is too convenient, he is a political kinda guy. Sounds good but hollow inside. Don’t want a cardboard steak. Yes, look at his actions. No one listened when we hollered about Bush when he ran Texas into the ground, either.

Gravel, another great voice, wrong generation. Old hippies never die … their voices are welcome in this America. Gravel is the biggest opponent of ‘Big Business’ electing our candidates and running this country’s policies. Gravel does not play to the media, he plays to the crowd that will listen to what he has learned. He must hope that he can pass along the insight he has accumulated. Again, he has no political machine and is not electable. He is a passionate ‘war horse’ for fair policies for GLBT Americans. Gravel and Kucinich should remain strong allies and work together.

Kucinich is great. I love this guy.

Kucinich, great things come in small packages. Such a forcefully pro-gay leprechaun, this guy is great – so sad he does not have the political machine to get himself elected. His idealism is contagious but not electable. We need Kucinich to continue speaking out whether he is electable or not.

Edwards fights for ordinary people. He is honest about his discomfort with G&L issues. (We know what that means). Because he admits his feelings honestly, I am comfortable with his leadership. I don’t think he would betray his promises, he still has to answer to Elizabeth.

Everyone knows what the issues are, everyone has an idea of the world they want to live in, Obama has the tools we need to take us there.

Obama is a statesman in the making. The art of positive thinking and a solid intellect will make him the statesman this country has needed for 8 years. He appears to see both sides of each coin and find the common ground. This country will not elect another lying radical. I still have not made my choice, but, at least I still have a voice …
Very interesting venue – no Republicans accepted the invitation …
