Hillary promises to protect same-sex couples. Shares personal story about gay neighbors who lived next to her parents.

This week Hillary Clinton told Ellen DeGeneres that she will “defend gay rights as President and eliminate inequality for same sex couples in federal law”.

She shared a story about a gay male couple [who lived next door to her parents] denied hospital visitation because they weren’t considered “family” under current legislation. One of the men got sick, and they were faced with a horrible situation. See the video below.

Elsewhere in the interview, Ellen and Hillary talk about the possibility of quitting the race for the Democratic presidential nomination because she’s behind.

And Hillary says: “You know, boys used to say that to me all the time.

“And I figured I know this contest is close. I don’t think either one of us should get out. We should let people vote. There are a lot of states that haven’t voted yet. They deserve a chance to have their votes counted, and I just feel like I’m doing this for myself, obviously because I believe so much in what our country can be again once we finally get through with President Bush and get back to being the America we know and love.”

    Wasn’t this story found out to be a “crock” like her “dodging bullets” in Bosnia? Wow. If anyone else was telling these woppers, they’d be “run out of town on a rail” as the expression goes. She tells such a bizarre story, and then just says “I mispoke” and thats the end of it? But then we learned from ol Billy Boy that the Clintons have a strange veiw of “truth.”
