55. I guess you can call me a single issue voter on Iraq at this point
I understand that there are a number of reasons someone becomes a single-issue voter and that because of moral convictions one may be rendered incapable of voting for someone because of a candidate's record or stated position.


I can see that as well even including GLBT issues. For me, war trumps all. There is nothing more crucial or more urgent having greater impact for more people than the consequences of war.

what is being held over Obama's head on the gay front seems based on an incident, not a position.

That's a good point and a good way of stating it. It seems pretty clear what the motivation has been to hold it over Obama's head for eight months, but it's time to put an end to it. We have a nominee and need to take our country back now.
