Obama Statement in Support of NH Civil Unions

January 2, 2008 at 11:12 am 2 comments

Barack Obama made the following statement on the New Hampshire civil unions law which went into effect on January 1.

Today, New Hampshire has started a New Year by taking an important step forward that will make a meaningful difference in the lives of so many gay and lesbian couples. As President, I’ll work for the day when all gay and lesbian couples in America can enjoy the same legal rights and privileges as straight couples. It’s time to stop using these issues to divide us; it’s time to embrace a future of tolerance, equality, and hope.

Read Obama’s platform on LGBT issues.

    My man Barack will tonight in Iowa.

    Expect the MSM to be confused and Hillary to try and negate this accomplishment.

    But from Iowa, Obama is poised to go onto win in New Hampshire and then South Carolina.

    From there, Super Tuesday in February. This is his moment in the sun and our opportunity to elect an agent for change and end the monarchy of two families — the Bushes and Clintons, from dominating the presidency.
