    It won't be Nunn

    Posted by: Andoni

    S_nunn Relax everybody, former Senator Sam Nunn will not be Senator Barack Obama's running mate. He is scheduled to be out of the country through Monday and Obama is scheduled to appear with his chosen running mate in Springfield, Illinois on Saturday. So, it's not going to be Nunn. Of course, if the Obama campaign was really intent for the press not to guess the VP's name, this would be the ultimate head fake.

    Lesbians and gays became apoplectic when Nunn's name arose as a possible VP for Obama. As we remember he was instrumental  in getting the punitive "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" through Congress. Additionally, he was anti-gay in most of his stances and even let a staffer go because he was gay.

    In a post yesterday, I was hoping it would be former vice president Al Gore, but I would also be happy with Senator Joe Biden, especially after reading David Brooks' column today in the New York Times. Also, according to the Human Rights Campaign, Biden has a fairly supportive history on gay issues, although he is not a co-sponsor of the Uniting American Families Act.
