Suze Orman’s Gonna Vote For Obama Because She Wants To Marry Her Girlfriend

Making an appearance on The View yesterday, Suze Orman said she would vote for Barack Obama over Mitt Romney because she wants to enjoy the legal and financial benefits of being married to her partner, Kathy Travis.

“It’s no secret that I am gay,” said the money maven. “So it is very difficult for me to look at any Republican nominee and go, ‘Oh, that’s who I want in office.’ Now I understand that President Obama isn’t necessarily for marriage and things, but I do believe that I have more of a chance” with Obama. “My social issue affects my financial issue,” Orman added. “If I die, my partner, K.T., is going to lose 50% of what I have, because we can’t be married.”
