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.

Obama team weighs Nunn, Edwards as running mates:

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.

I don't know what I'd do if he chooses Sam Nunn. Thankfully, I don't think he will. Nunn is the perennial rumored pick that no one does.

This is not a ticket balance it is a ticket contradiction.
