"To paraphrase Hillary Clinton: 'It's not who you were for, it's WHO IS FOR YOU.' "I know that Barack Obama will fight for me and all LGBT Americans. He will fight for the gay factory worker, who stays in the closet for fear of being fired. He will fight for the devoted partner afraid that she will be barred from visiting the women she loves in the hospital. He will fight for gay kids afraid to walk down the hallway at school. Barack Obama will fight for all of us who are different because he knows what it is like to be different."

-- Former National Director of LGBT Outreach for Hillary Clinton's campaign, Mark Walsh, in a statement e-mailed to Bilerico Project
