But I digress.
It seems that the Massachusetts Democratic party plans to include a plank that endorses gay marriage. John Kerry gave a speech yesterday where he said he was against the plank addition.
Kerry, who opposes same-sex marriage but supports civil unions, said in an interview with the Globe that he would prefer that the party not mention gay marriage in its platform, because Democrats continue to disagree on how to handle the issue.
"I'm opposed to it being in a platform. I think it's a mistake," Kerry said shortly after hosting a forum on his universal children's healthcare bill in Baton Rouge. "I think it's the wrong thing, and I'm not sure it reflects the broad view of the Democratic Party in our state."
Maybe if Kerry had been a little more sociably tolerable - instead of one of the countless Republicrats we've seen lately - he might have won the election. It's hard to get your "liberal" base inspired when you mimic the right-wing candidate. Again (see my post from a couple days ago), does anyone else need a better reason to support Dennis Kucinich in 2008?
John Kerry didn't lose the election because of gay rights. John Kerry lost the election because of John Kerry.
