Final Count…

The Democratic Party today released the final version of their 2008 platform. And, no, they didn’t add the words lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender, as some would have liked. Sexuality, gender expression and gender identity are all mentioned in the platforms bit on ending discrimination, and the party pledges their support to ending “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.” Hillary Clinton‘s referenced once, while Barack Obama‘s name comes up nine times. Here’s a PDF. It’s great for the weekend! [via The Washington Note]
