    if we could have a Democratic nominee who would take a firm position on this issue, such as the one all of us seem to agree is the no-brainer position (i.e., equality)?

    I seriously can't get my head around the difficulty that prominent Democrats have on this issue.  Democrats should not be hedging on fundamental equality issues, and yet all the frontrunners, as far as I know, stop short of advocating full legal equality for people of all sexual orientations.  I cringe at the thought of a debate between the Democratic nominee and someone like Huckabee, where the two end up in agreement on how the law should treat gays and lesbians.

    It's not only unacceptable, but it's inexplicable.  We've come far enough that Democrats should not feel the need to pander to right-wing fundamentalists on basic issues of equality.
