    sad he comes out and then talks about fact being gay doesn’t affect his work. Sounds like he’s a truckdriver or a pharmacist, he’s a congressman, he makes policy, it should affect his work, esp as Governor.

    He’s a man from a different generation. When he began his career in politics staying in the closet was his only option. No matter the reasons for him coming out, he’s out. That’s a good thing.

    You evidently did not pay attention to what he said. He said that he worked in a mill for 29 years. Yeah, that’s not a truck driver, but it’s normal everyday work that many Mainers do. If you also did not notice he’s been a legislator for many years and there’s really been no reason for him to mention his sexuality. Since there was a person or persons who did want to make a big deal about it he nipped it in the bud and let everyone know that he is gay and he’s not embarrassed about it.

    Look, clearly, the attention is a little bit much for Rep. Michaud. It’s understandable. He’s 59 and just told his parents he’s gay on Sunday. He sees it as a personal thing, and he doesn’t want to be known as the “gay Governor” or “gay candidate”…he just wants to be Mike. I understand, almost sympathize, really. Put yourself in his shoes here, people.

    @FRANCIS #1 That’s my exact sentiment. I think a lot of my generation forgets to think about what it was like for these people back in the day. Every era has its cons. Who are people my age to judge when we weren’t living in that time period with that kind of society.
