Wellstone and Mondale
This quote by a Minnesota gay activist regarding Wellstone, from a post at the Brothers Judd (link via Andrew Sullivan): ""I would have voted for Wellstone. But, sorry for my disrespect, I personally hated the man. He was grossly, openly homophobic. He was a loud advocate of the Defense of Marriage Act, and gave quotes like "what Sheila and I have is a holy thing, a covenant between each other and with god. I don't believe same sex relationships have that sanctity."
Wow. I never knew words like those graced the lips of the former senator.
