That’s what John Aravosis says on his post noting Elizabeth Edward’s support of gay marriage. While I’m not sure I entirely agree with his predictions, I think Aravosis makes some excellent points when he says:
I want my civil rights, I don’t want to be on the receiving end of constant triangulation. Mrs. Edwards will be a force for good, at least as it concerns the civil and human rights of gay and lesbian Americans. As much as I like the man, I can’t say the same about Mr. Clinton. He’s going to be advising Hillary to throw us under the bus. That doesn’t mean Hillary will, but her top two advisers have a history of legislative gay-bashing for political gain. That’s of legitimate concern.
For a number of reasons, I don’t think Bill Clinton would urge repeating his appalling DOMA behavior. That said, I like Elizabeth Edwards more than any of the 2008 spouses (and many of the candidates themselves).
