32. Thank you for saying it, president Clinton.

I knew that his heart was in the right place, both Clintons had openly gay staffers since their days in AR (not exactly a bastion of liberalism). The 90s were an interesting time. After years of Reagan conservatives in DC, a young much more liberal couple entered the WH. They were both despised by the right from the moment they got there. Gays in the military? How dare he!!!! Affordable healthcare for everyone? How dare she!!! And so on and so forth ......

They even had to put up with 5 years of a special prosecutor dragging them and their staffers through the mud, just to find out what precisely? That he had a fling?

I know that they don't pass the purity test for some liberals, but they are both good people and I'm glad that Bill spoke out against DOMA.
