Video: Humanity for Former Habitat: Pres. Carter on gay prez potential

by Jeremy Hooper

86. Southern. Baptist. The perfect demographic to support something as benign as a gay president:

Jimmy Carter: Well I think the entire population of America has come tremendous strides forward in dealing with the issue of gays. And I would say that the answer is yes. I don’t know about the next election, but I think in the near future. Because step-by-step we have realized that this issue of homosexuality has the same adverse and progressive elements as when we dealt with the race issue 50 years ago... or 40 years ago. So I would say that the country is getting acclimated to a President who might be female, who might obviously, now be black and who might be as well, a gay person. Yes, I would say the answer is, yes.
America is Ready For A Gay President [Big Think]

Well, we're not exactly an "issue." But we get the sentiment. And we appreciate it.

Though we hear Carter actually had lots more to say on this and other issues, but a charismatic California actor came in and prematurely took over the space. Always.
