Obama picked Joe Biden. Big surprise. What did surprise me is Biden’s relatively good record on quiltbag issues. According to Waymon Hudson at the Bilerico Report:
Biden scored a 78% from the HRC 2006 rankings on LGBT rights. I’ve gathered information on his votes and quotes about hate crimes legislation, employment discrimination, DADT, immigration equality and civil unions.
It’s worth scrumming through.
For me the Obama/Biden ticket is utterly uninspiring but at least neither of them is an idiot, and if I could vote I suppose I would vote for them because, hey, look at the alternative.
