21. We all know the right answer but it's hard to avoid traps when saying it..
Harry (and others),
I agree with you... Kerry and Edwards tend to hem and haw a lot on questions but you and I know as Clark supporters that straight-forward statements don't play well. Kerry's a longtime politician and Edwards is a trial-lawyer and both have learned to be very cautious of what they say.

I know where I, and many other DUers stand... that GLBT community should have the same legal and civil recognition of their committed relationships that are afforded to heterosexual couples, but I'm not sure how we can get that message out over hostile media.

I don't this amendment business is going to pan out and we can only hope it doesn't effectively egg our candidate.

Let's definately keep talking through it though, if nothing else it allows me to vent. :)

From Clark Country,
I'm Another Clarkie for Kerry!
