Gillibrand: DADT firebrand

by Jeremy Hooper

This letter just hit the G-A-Y inbox:

Picture 8-153

Hillary Clinton's shadow is certainly a formidable one. But it's good to see that as Sen. Gillibrand seeks her own time in the sun, she's remembering to respect the rainbow. We applaud the junior senator.
