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.”
