Rod, you're doing a fabulous job of updating us about the candidates. While I don't thinlk any of themn are speaking to me yet--or, to the black gay community per se--it's good to see that they are making overtures. However, you are doing quite a good job.

Agreed. The candidates are not speaking to me personally yet. But they could be, I'm keeping my option open. But Joshua made a very good point, you are all over the election and LGBT issues, its wonderful.

Rod, have you made any endorsements yet?

derrick

I haven't made my mind up yet. Clinton is clearly the strongest but the most bland. Edwards positions are the most meaningful but he cannot stay on mnessage. Obama is the most telegenic but has the least experience and gravitas.

Thanks for pointing out the fact that Clinton's previous gay announcements never made her front page.

Quinton

It's amazing that so many gay people are going ga-ga over Hillary Clinton. She has never stood with the community.

Also, who are the "prominent" black gay mena nd lesbians supporting? And are the candidates reaching out to us?

Quintoin, I think you're reading too much into the updates.

If you look at all the canmdidate coverage, Derrick makes a good point. Rod has consistently said thast Clinton is probably the most forceful but least personable. Edwards has bneen repoorted several days this week, but traditionally, as said above, gets off message. And he is always bullish on Obama. I don't think he has made any endorsements, he's just keeping ups up to the minute.

How many of the members of this LGBT steering committtee are people of color?

LaRufus

I still don't see what's so great about her, but, that's just me, as I just don't see myself voting for her. But, I wonder if she has by black folks on this committee, or the same old ones who give her big bucks?

It's fine that Hillary Clinton may not be the candidate for you. Okay. GET INVOLVED. Every day, every time Rod updates anything about the candidates, there are dozens of complaints

Hilary, Barack Obama and John Edwards are doing this outreach because, as Rod predicted in his article for The Advocate, they would compete over gay votes (and dollars) and try to adjust their positions. You're not going to find someone to agree with you 100 percent. So start looking.

You could easily find out how many of these faces are black by doing a Google or looking at the list. Same thing with Obama or Edwards. Just do something.

Andy

So, she too is pandering for votes? Just why should any gay perosn vote for her? Sorry, not my type of canidate. I wish that Richardson or Kucninh had a chance, but, this system is for the ones who can raise he most money, and with the Democtartic "front runners, looks like 4 more years of GOP torture at this point in time.

But, great updates on all of them.
