Video: H.R.C addresses HRC

by Jeremy Hooper

From an HRC board meeting held Friday in D.C:

Hmm...okay, that all sounded pretty good. We still stand by the thought that if just one of these promising candidates would take a principled stand for full marriage equality instead of roundabout versions of the concept, that they'd set themselves apart in ways that would prove more endearing than they might think. However, that seems pretty much out of the question for this crop of Democratic prez hopefuls. That being the case, we'll keep listening to this percieved-as-more-electable language for now, in hopes that this slate of Dems will evolve and realize that stopping short of full equality (i.e. civil unions) would only lead a future candidate to denounce the less-than-equal policies that they supported (much in the way they're currently denouncing "Don't Ask, Don't Tell").

So Hillary: All in all, not a bad showing. We do ask, however, that as your march down your trail, you at least consider the much less verbose yet far more exciting statement: "I support marriage equality!" After all, Hill: Don't those who so staunchly oppose the concept pretty much oppose you already.

Your thoughts

Oh please. Hillary may appeal to you from a liberal perspective on issues, but don't be fooled into thinking that she won't sell gays down the river for political gain faster than her husband. In '08 it's time for a real change: no more Bushes OR Clintons.

I have been quite critical of Hillary during the time she has served as my Senator and would never be fooled into ANYTHING. All I said was that she said some nice things, despite whether she means them or not. At this point in the horse race, I'm choosing to be more hopeful than negative.

Never say "never", Jeremy. Politicians on both sides are quite adept at pulling the wool over the eyes of all us from time to time. I've been had as well.

As for '08, the only one who looks okay thus far to me is Rudy.
