Gay Activists Frustrated By Politics (As Usual)

Campaign Frustrates Some Gay Activists
Few constituencies are as eager for the Republican Party to falter this political season as gay-rights activists. Yet as they observe the Democratic presidential campaign and the rest of the electoral landscape, their high hopes often are mixed with frustration.

Even as they expect to support whichever Democrat gets the presidential nomination, many activists are disappointed that the three leading contenders rarely mention gay-rights topics unless responding to a question.

"They don't want to broach civil unions, marriage, equalizing benefits for same-sex couples," said Jennifer Chrisler, head of the Family Equality Council, which supports gay and lesbian families.
Duhhhhh......!!! Welcome to reality gay people. The Democrats do not care about anything but getting your votes, and they'll do the minimum amount of pandering necessary to achieve that goal. Beyond that, the DNC will ignore you altogether if it's politically expedient. In short, don't call them, they'll call you...on election day.
