"...to be successful, we in Congress must work in partnership with the occupant of the White House and in Barack Obama we have a true ally. Asked to be on the Democratic Platform Drafting Committee and proud to serve as Co-Chair of Obama's LGBT Steering and Policy Committee, I am convinced that we will see historic change in the years ahead.

"Just imagine ... next session, we could pass and President Obama could sign into law the Matthew Shepard Hate Crimes Act. Next session, we could pass and President Obama could sign into law an inclusive Employment Non-Discrimination Act. Next session, President Obama could lead the call for the repeal of Don't Ask, Don't Tell. I say "could," because all of this is only possible if we elect Senator Obama as our next President."

-- Representative Tammy Baldwin (D-WI), speaking out on behalf of presidential candidate Barack Obama

Rep. Baldwin is right. We have to do everything we can to elect Sen. Obama as our next president and increase the Democratic majorities in both the House and Senate.

John McCain has opposed every piece of pro-LGBT legislation that has come his way. Don't let the Log Cabin Republicans fool you. McCain is no friend to LGBT people.
