'Culture war' death watch: Republican Clarkson cites gay friends as reason to lean Obama

by Jeremy Hooper

A win for LGBT rights, online writing, and those of us who long for the day when gay human existence is no longer part of a political "culture war":

I’ve been reading online about the debates and I’m probably going to vote for Obama again, even though I’m a Republican at heart. I can’t support Romney’s policies as I have a lot of gay friends and I don’t think it’s fair they can’t get married. I’m not a hardcore feminist but we can’t be going back to the 50s. Obama is a great guy. I’ve met him and I’m a fan of Michelle too. She has been busy promoting better education and healthy diets, which is something we could all use a dose of reality on.

Kelly Clarkson, speaking to The Daily Star

But you all keep up this gay stuff, GOP. Seems to really be winning you the future, that.
