I can't imagine the Obama campaign would piss off gay voters... They'll need every member of the coalition to pull it off. This should be a lesson to politicians. Hate can often come back and get ya.
Nunn would bring national security credentials to the ticket, having served as the longtime Armed Services Committee chairman. The former Georgia senator is a member of Obama's foreign policy advisory group.
But Nunn has not been in office for more than a decade so he is not well-known nationally. He is a conservative Democrat who supported school prayer and opposed gays in the military, while Obama tends to have a more liberal viewpoint. Nunn will turn 70 in September.
