Gay marriage supporters held “kiss-ins” at Chik-fil-A restaurants from coast-to-coast sending out a message to the company’s CEO Dan Cathy who recently spoke out against same sex unions.
Same Sex Kiss Day is in response to Cathy’s comments made last month in which he said he supported “the biblical definition of the family unit.”
This made t he roughly 1,600 Chik-fil-A restaurants battle grounds for the gay marriage debate.
The Chik-fil-A kiss-in idea came from Carly McGehee, a Dallas political activist. While it is impossible to know how many people puckered up for gay marriage outside a Chik-fil-A on Friday. Carly said more than 15,000 people said they planned to participate via an event page she posted on Facebook.
Hillary Clinton continues to earn respect, and she continues to dominate political headlines although she isn’t a candidate for President this year.
The two questions that may never be answered, however, are:
- Would Hillary make a better President that either of the top two candidates, Barack Obama and Mitt Romney?
- Is dropping Joe Biden for Hillary Clinton, the best chance that Obama has to win re-election?
Brent Budowsky, who writes for The Hill, has his own opinion.
“Hillary Rodham Clinton has earned her iconic stature. She should be chosen to run as vice president by President Obama, and if he so chooses, they win a landslide. I hope she runs for president in 2016 and urge Hillary admirers to begin a Draft Hillary in 2016 movement once the 2012 election has ended.”
While I agree that we should definitely start working on Hillary’s bid for the White House immediately following the 2012 election, I think she’s very over qualified to be Vice-President.

Presidential elections typically only come around every four years and can often be as celebrated as the Olympics. Americans choose a team, then get all tied up in the drama as the candidates take jabs and blows at one another until the challenge all comes to head during the first week of November.
Time-after-time, you hear potential voters say that they forgot to register to participate until it is too late.
