Clinton

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has added her voice to the "It Gets Better" campaign, recording a message of hope for LGBT teens who have been bullied.

Says Clinton: "Take heart. And have hope. And please remember that your life is valuable, and that you are not alone. Many people are standing with you and sending you their thoughts, their prayers, and their strength. Count me among them."

  1. Fabulous as always!

    I'm still very comfortable that I DID vote for her in the primaries.

  3. Remember that time her husband signed a law.....I think it was called the Defense of Marriage....and made that DADT thing, pretty cool right?

    I'll never understand why people will fawn over fair-weathered liberals who will put in to place homophobic policies if they're popular just because they've made a five minute video. These people may not be as bad as Bush Jr. or Pat Roberson, but they are not our friends.

  4. Hmmmm, not one REPUBLICAN has voiced anything against, or acknowledged, gay bullying. Not even those 'gay Republicans' who just came out of the closet and want the gay community to embrace them!!! (cough, cough)

  8. The Love Hillary/Hate Obama tone to some of these comments is curious given that she's not ad libbing here or speaking as candidate Hillary; she is reading a carefully prepared statement (probably one prepared by someone else whose boss is the "community gardener") that may represent her views but also clearly represent the views of the administration she is representing. She's not a free agent running for office--and anyone who thinks she'll run in 2012 is fantasizing. I'm glad she was a voice for Obama's administration on this issue, since she commands respect, as she should. I salute her speaking out and hope she urges the President himself to speak out further. But it's illogical to see her as a counterpoint to Obama's views and policies while she is acting as his Secretary of State. If she's as fabulous as some here seem to think she is, we should be grateful that she is part of the (actual) President's cabinet.

  9. OMG....She has publicly opposed gay marriage and her husband [who doesn't believe she had no influence in the oval office?] did little for gays aside from DADT. When it became apparent this wasn't working out well, he could have easily quietly issued an executive order integrating gays into the armed forces, just like Truman did with black folks long ago. Truman caught hell, but he didn't care and simply did it. And it ultimately didn't hurt him politically. The Clinton Crew, Obama Crew....bullshitters, stringing the dumb 'fags' along while accepting gay votes, campaign time, and cash. This is the reality, not the marketing / P.R. bullshit.

  10. @ Tank....You have balls??! I thought you were a girl.

  11. Don't give up, you're future is bright...unless you want to do something crazy like get married.

    How is this brave? How is it not totally hypocritical? She is the nth person to make one of these videos, but probably the only one who has done it who doesn't support equal rights for everyone.

    It's true, she didn't "have to." No one "had to" support the causes (all of them) of many minorities in history. They did it because it was right, not because it was politically expedient or fashionable.

  12. @Tank,
    Hillary would have been better because she and Bill are better policy wonks. They would have used fiscally responsible Clinotnomics, with better strategic spending to stimulate the economy, and reconciliation to get a stronger healthcare bill without waiting for months on the republicans. Obama threw away a ton of political capital and now he may loose the congress.
    But the far left and the powers that be forced him on us.
    And you're right. We're stuck with him.

  13. No Wilberforce,

    You're not stuck with him. Just vote him out in 2012 and he and his family can move on and do other things and make tons on $$$ And won't have to give a fuck what the gays think about them.
    You'll finally have your Hillary in office hoepfully and you'll just feel better with a white woman smiling in your face while NOTHING gets passed for this community then Barack.

    But Oh he'll be gone and I for one will be glad he doean't have to hear hypocrites who DIDN'T vote for him or felt they were forced to vote for him complain!

  15. Most of you in here are as stupid, ignorant, misinformed, and bigoted, as any Tea Party member I know, and that includes Sarah Palin.

    Where was Hillary Clinton when her dick-sucked husband, useless Bill, signed DOMA and DADT?

    Does time erase those drugged-filled brain cells oh clueless wonders!

    Idiots!

  16. And Wilberforce.....not the one of historical significance... Raised from the dead!

    Try again!

    Your attempt at intellectualizing your nonsense falls flat on its face. Just in case you were not aware: the "Clinton Economic Team" sits in the White House, presently!

    What do you think about that Einstein!

    Posted by: Brains | Oct 20, 2010 1:25:43 AM


  17. Clintonomics? You don't understand economics...Clinton and Bush admins are both responsible for the rampant deregulation that enabled banks too big to fail to hold congress hostage. I still think hillary wouldn't have caved for healthcare reform, however. Obama doesn't have the acumen or, really, will to use the executive to his and the country's advantage. This comment section's ass.

    Posted by: TANK | Oct 20, 2010 2:21:39 AM


  18. Brains,
    Yeah the Clinton team sit there, but they didn't use Clintonomics. They used outdated Keynesianism. They're both policy platforms that I don't have time to explain. Let's just say that Keynesianism didn't work, ran up the deficit, and threw away a ton of political capital. All that was predictable.
    As for doma and dadt, I also don't have time to cover politics 1A, or talk about the generals' role in dadt or public opinion on doma.
    I was just trying to talk with Tank. But thanks for the name calling.

  19. "Yeah the Clinton team sit there, but they didn't use Clintonomics."

    Oh MY GOD! Stop using that term. It's ridiculous. It's based solely on the surplus, while completely overlooking the deregulatory policies the Clinton admin implemented and that was continued (and ramped up) under Bush II, resulting in the inevitable catastrophe we're still reeling from, and that was likely just a sampling of what's in store.

    And Brains, I'm not a racist...I've seen all of the big mama's house movies...and after that, I'm bulletproof, baby.

    But Wilberforce you're ready to Blame Obama for everything aren't you? But not The Clinton's. Who cares about the general's if that be the case those same generals are in Obama's way so can he get that excuse as well?

    Look sweetie. Most of us already know the gays didn't want Obama it's safe to say that. But stop making the Clinton's look like Angels. Regardless of him signing D.A.D.T and D.O.M.A and her NOT supportive of Gay Marriage you all still adore them?

    That I just don't get! Hypocritical thinking of our community. One can do it. But the other one can't? SMDH!

  21. Thanks to Hillary and the State Department I am now recognised by my partner's employer (the UN) as a spouse and receive all the benefits of heterosexual spouses.
    This came after 15 years of being told "No!" So yes - she has proved herself an ally of the LGBT community.

  23. there will always be the ditzy little sissies and the repug 'plants' with the, "yes but" comments. what clinton tried to do in 1993 as it pertained to the integration of gays in the military was a long shot. the conservative base in his own democratic senate lead by conservative senator sam nunn was opposed. an executive order by clinton to force the issue would have been overridden. thus, he proposed a compromise, 'don't ask don't tell." the president is not 'king'. he cannot simply sign a directive into law. the reason truman was able to order integration of blacks into the services by executive order was that america needed the blood of black, brown, red, yellow soldiers to survive. never mind that they were all denied basic rights under the constitution. let us be honest: conservative, right-wing, religious bigots have held sway over america for too long. it is time that they were called on their bullshit.

  25. Wonderful! Excellent video. Deep, human message. Thank you.
    (I still think what if she was a president, but I guess democrates wanted to go the other way.)
