First Openly Gay Ambassador Reflects on Political Statement

I donít want to make a disclosure here because this person is still around, but there was a very popular Member of the U.S. Senate who held a variety of other political posts in his home state and was a real leader in education as well as in politics. If he had been out, I think that would have made a huge difference. But he wasnít. The more we see of people like [Reps.] Tammy Baldwin or Jared Polis, the more we will be inclined to discard notions of sexual orientation that are based on fiction and not fact.
