Gubernatorial Leaders.

“Massachusetts governor Deval Patrick and New York governor David Paterson have more than a few things in common. Of course, there’s the obvious: Both men are handsome, charismatic, and in their 50s. Both are the first black governors of their states–and only the second and third nationwide since Reconstruction. But less obvious — at least to the average voter — is their similar dedication to pro-gay politics.” [The Advocate]
