15. Of course, but it's an issue that's completely based on personal morality.
You can't factually support it. It's a 90s tabloid social issue more than anything. The question was posed as a trap (so the corporate elite and the religious front groups - christian coalition, etc. - that they fund can run ad campaigns using the soundbite in 2008, because Clinton is only 99.9% pro-super-rich-at-the-expense-of-everyone-else; not quite enough for those greedy pigs), and she refused to fall into that trap.

Also, what about prioritizing issues? I'm sure that her opinion on homosexuality isn't quite as pressing as her opinion on global warming or energy conservation or globalization.

Nevertheless, Clinton will never take a stand on any issue. She IS the caricature that the Republicans made of John Kerry in 2004 (the calculating political windsurfer).
