Hillary Clinton may be leading the gay dollar pack, but some voters think she’s walking the thin pink line.
Appearing at YearlyKos, a conference for liberal bloggers, Senator Clinton apparently had to do some political juggling when asked about her former president husband Bill’s Defense of Marriage Act:
[Clinton] hedged and dodged in a complicated set of answers to explain herself.
The Defense of Marriage Act, which denied federal recognition of same-sex marriages and gave states the right to refuse to recognize same-sex marriages, “served a very important purpose,” she told the blogger. The law staved off Republican efforts to amend the U.S. Constitution to ban gay marriage, Clinton said, an argument that seems to consign her husband’s support of the law to the “necessary evil” category.
Clinton’s not only adept at the political game, she’s also a pro when it comes to matters of the gay heart.
President Bill Clinton’s gay press secretary Neel Lattimore tells Newsweek Ms. Clinton used to play matchmaker: “She would always tell me, ‘So-and-so is coming to dinner tonight–I don’t think he has a partner’.” What a yenta!
