It happens when a father realizes he doesn’t just love his daughter, but also her wife. It happens when a soldier tells his unit that he’s gay, and they tell him they knew it all along and they didn’t care, because he was the toughest guy in the unit. It happens when a video sparks a movement to let every single young person know they’re not alone, and things will get better.

It happens when people look past their ultimately minor differences to see themselves in the hopes and struggles of their fellow human beings. That’s where change is happening.

And that’s not just the story of the gay rights movement. That’s the story of America—the slow, inexorable march towards a more perfect union.
President Obama

YAY!!! the man does have a way with words, but the words don't mean a thing if the heart isn't behind them and you know with him, it is.

As long as people don't become too complacent, thinking that he's a shoo-in and get out and vote.

that's my fear, apparently he's not get the big Hollywood et al money this time around. I read they think he is a shoo-in. Voting is the key and something Democrats seem particularly inconsistent in doing. My daughter votes for the first time this election so that's cool anyway :D

It would be such a shame. Unfortunately a lot of idiots are out there - and the Repugnicans are counting on them.

I shudder at the thought. Obama has made mistakes, but his heart is so much more in the right place. What there are out there is reactionaries, idiot reactionaries and you are right, the Republicans are counting on them.
