Al Gore has come out! Not a queer closet however, the "I don't have to worry about losing votes closet" to support gay marriage. Gore has done more for society since he left office than he could have in office it seems.
Here are his comments on gay marriage as posted on youtube.
Its helpful to have Gore speak out like this and I expect that in the next five years gays will be able to marry each other in many US States. The religious right are losing ground and will be pushed even further if the Democrats win the White house and hold onto congress.
This time the Democrats need to take stand up. I think everyone has waited long enough. See this article in the New York Times - Gore’s Gay Marriage Gambit.
