Obama's Iowa Win: Not Good For Gays

Richard Rothstein gets it right:

The Iowa primary represents a remarkable day in Black American history and
as an American I am deeply moved by the prospect of our first African-American
President. But as a queer I have to come to terms with the fact that as
President, an Obama
will not cross his power base and any hope of equal civil rights for queers
anytime in the near future was possibly run to ground last night in an Iowa

Don't forget, Obama sanctioned the inclusion of an anti-gay black clergyman as a part of his campaign. You can't be for social justice for gays and do something like that.
