    Both Obama and Biden stated in no uncertain terms that they do not support same-sex marriage.

    It's pretty clear to me that the Democrats are OK allies for many important issues, but GLBT rights are not among them. We're going to need to work around the Democratic Party. We're going to have to bring the fight to many who consider themselves progressives. We're going to have to get in the face of a lot of people.

    I'm still wondering if I should try and have hope for the Dems or if I shouldn't just go completely Green. I'll be honest, Obama didn't really inspire me much because let's be honest, he's not really very liberal at all. In most countries, the Dems would be center-right at best. They support positions the Conservatives in the UK and Canada support.

    I wish Obama well. But I know now that I'm not part of the 'we' in Yes We Can. Perhaps one day that will change, but I have a feeling it will be many years down the road with a different President who has more courage.

      After McClurkin.

      To think that the first African American to be elected president has elected to remain silent underscores the impression that some people are more equal than others.
