Did Barack find Gavin unphotogenic?

by Jeremy Hooper

200802051023Back in 2004, when Gavin Newsom was the poster boy for gay-friendly straight men everywhere, did Barack Obama shy away from having his picture taken with the San Francisco mayor? Newsom insiders say yes; Obama insiders call the claim "ridiculous." Read this San Francisco Chronicle story and decide for yourself:

Obama snub still rankles Newsom [SFGate.com]

Now, since Newsom is a Clinton supporter, there are some who think this story is a calculated move to drive gay voters to Hillary. And there are others, like former SF mayor Willie Brown, who see good reason why Obama, then running for U.S. Senate, might've have shied away from connecting himself with gay marriage back at a time when the idea was see nas much more "radical" than it is today.

As for us -- well we think Gavin and Barack should just make out and get it all over with.
