Hillary Clinton's outreach to queer folk

Well, she calls us by the more politically correct term, "LGBT Americans." Here's a blog post signed by Sen. Clinton, posted on a gay site:

LGBT Americans: "I Want to Be Your President"

by Senator Hillary Clinton


As I have traveled around the country these past twelve months, what I sensed in my heart has been confirmed – America is embracing its LGBT sons and daughters with an acceptance and understanding as never before. On the campaign trail, a father of a gay son will ask about ending Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell. A woman will ask why she can be discriminated against just because of who she is. Sometimes they wait furtively for the crowd to thin and then whisper their confidences in a soft voice and sometimes they stand up proudly at town meetings and want me to share my views on how I will help lead the change to assure that this country fulfills its promise to everyone.

Let me tell you what I have been telling voters across America. I am fully committed to the fair and equal treatment of LGBT Americans. For seven long years, the Bush Administration has tried to divide us - only seeing people who matter to them. It's been a government of the few, by the few, and for the few. And no community has been more invisible to this administration than the LGBT community.

Obama in Jersey

WESTFIELD, N.J.--It was not your blogstress's intention to abandon her devotees on Almost Super Monday, indeed it was not, mes amis. However, your cybertrix found herself with a sketchy internet connection inside the Izod Arena (renamed twice now, a terrible disservice to the memory of the governorship of one Brendan Byrne). When did Izod rule Jersey? I thought we were more a "Members Only" sort of crew.

So, please accept the apology for the lack of original material for today on AddieStan, but do take a look at your blogstress's offerings on TAPPED:

WHAT A LONG, STRANGE TRIP IT'S BEEN
