Washington Blade Editor Pulls Endorsement of Clinton
Kevin Naff, editor of the Washington Blade, wrote a spot on editorial recanting his previous endorsement of Hillary Clinton and urging LGBT voters to line up behind Barack Obama.
IN SHARP CONTRAST to Clinton’s transparent, over-the-top pandering (downing shots with the locals and touting a phony love of guns), Obama has managed to stay above the fray, even during the darkest moments of the Wright saga. He could have gone sharply negative in the run-up to North Carolina and Indiana, as some advised him to do. Instead, he stuck to his own metaphorical guns and rose above the faux controversies and petty attacks. Even in victory Tuesday night, Obama praised Clinton and promised that his supporters would back her if she emerged as the party nominee.
But she didn’t emerge victorious and the time has come for her supporters, gay and straight, to embrace Obama’s campaign for the White House. The stakes are too high to allow primary race disappointments to demoralize Democratic voters. And the stakes for gay voters are higher.
Exactly. There is far too much at stake for gay voters to indulge Clinton’s delusional continuation of her primary race.
McCain wants to pack the Supreme Court with Alito and Roberts clones. That would be hugely damaging to the future of LGBT civil rights and not worth the “stand by your diva” mentality that far too many gays have.
