As a follow up to yesterday's post on Prop 8, I have a couple of responses to comments I have received.
First, comment on the blog, so I can respond on the blog and it will look like someone's actually reading this thing! I have it set up so that you don't need a blogger account to comment, so everybody, anybody, leave comments!
Next: I am fully aware that Obama was against Prop 8. Any good progressive would be. Most of them were! My argument was, however, that time and resources may not have been allocated to the defeat of the proposition in the proportions that the Mormon church was committed to contributing in its support. Also, Obama's job as a political candidate, and soon as the president, is not to necessarily meddle in state ballot measures - he can, however, encourage state representatives to fight the good fight.
The other comment I received about the post was that it was a bit of a rant - my apologies! I want this blog to be entertaining and informative, not angry.
In a few: My discussion of Obama's newly appointed White House Chief of Staff, Rahm Emanuel.
