Is Ireland On Its Way To Electing Sen. David Norris Its First Gay President?

At first it seemed like a lark: Ireland’s gay Sen. David Norris kicked off a challenge to succeed President Mary McAleese because of a grassroots Facebook campaign that urged him to mount a campaign. And now the independent senator is polling ahead of other candidates, with the latest data indicating he’s got 27 percent of likely voters’ support. That doesn’t mean he’s got this thing on lock. A lot can happen between now and November.
