He may not be one of the front runners, but presidential candidate Mike Gravel may garner the most gay votes after his strong endorsement of gay marriage. The former Alaskan senator told New Hampshire’s WMUR-TV:
If a couple of lesbians or gay men want to get married, and they love each other, they should have the right to do that and enjoy all the legalities in our society that go along with that. I have no problem with that at all.
I think that people who create these problems of homophobia and the likes of that do us a disservice. We are all human beings and one of the things that should motivate us, most of all, is love.
Rare words from the political arena.
Although, Gravel’s a rare politician – the 77-year old politico wants an immediate withdrawal from Iraq, no more IRS and hopes to legalize pot, “You should be able to buy that at a liquor store”. Sigh, our hero… Too bad he doesn’t have a chance in hell.
