53. While I'm not Senator Clinton's greatest supporter, I will disagree.
Obama was asked by LGBT people to disassociate his campaign from Donnie McClurkin many days before this huge GOTV event in South Carolina. Obama refused.

I think I'd be happy if Obama held a similarly huge GOTV event exclusively for LGBT people in Columbia, SC. And when the right-wing Christian fundies freak out, Obama will have an opportunity to offer real leadership on LGBT issues.
