Hillary Fights For Ellen’s Gay Rights

The Hillary Clinton and Ellen DeGeneres love fest continues next Monday, when Clinton makes her second appearance on the funny lesbian’s talk show. Thanks to the power of the publicist – er, we mean the Associated Press – we can tell you that DeGeneres asked Clinton about gay rights, and Clinton passed the test:

[Clinton] told Ellen DeGeneres that she will work to ensure that same-sex couples such as the talk show host and her partner Portia de Rossi are treated fairly.

“I’m going to do everything I can to make sure that people like you and Portia and others have a chance to have, you know, rights to be able to go to the hospital, to inherit property, to make sure that you can list somebody as a beneficiary on an insurance policy,” Clinton said…

“That’s all we want is to be fair,” DeGeneres responded. “I like it. I like it.”

This is the second time this year that the girls have shared the spotlight: DeGeneres “surprised” Clinton at a campaign stop earlier this year and declared that the Senator “has solutions.”
