Why Obama

I admit that this post is nothing more than a shameless attempt on my part to urge LGBT Americans to vote for Barack Obama for the presidency. For that, I do not apologize. On the Democratic side we have a wealth of candidates who support LGBT civil rights, but I strongly believe that Barack has the vision, political smarts and judgement to move our issues further fastest.

Disclosure: I am a member of Barack's LGBT Policy Committee.

This clip is not LGBT specific. Barack speaks to us as Americans who are hungry for real change in our country, not just a bit of tinkering under the hood, but real, substantive change that will help us to find solutions to our domestic problems and rebuild our international credibility.

As someone who has been a fan of Obama since well before he jumped on the national stage - he was a state senator in Illinois for 7 years - he has my vote as well.
