Our editor recently sat down with gay activist David Mixner and while we won’t publish the boys’ chat until tomorrow morning, here what Mixner, who once supported John Edwards and is a long-time friend of Hillary Clinton‘s, had to say about backing Barack Obama: “One of the joys of this campaign is that I had to make a decision not to support Senator Clinton, then I supported John Edwards and I ended up with Obama and I have become a real huge Obama fan in the process, which sort of caught me by surprise… [This election is] between the future and the past. It’s just such a clear cut decision for the people of this country.”
