Obama Hearts The Gays (In Texas and Ohio)
First scooped over at Towleroad, here's the new Obama LGBT-specific ad running in Ohio and Texas. Clinton and McCain supporters, of course, will attack the quote as empty speechifying...which is getting a little tired, as criticisms go. When a candidate who has little to gain and everything to lose by publicly supporting gay issues (in Texas!) puts his money where his mouth is, I think it's important that we all respect it, regardles of who we're voting for. Principles still matter.
