  1. Billie Jean King makes me proud.

  2. I have to admit she is very inspirational and I love her attitude toward life, never half empty always half full. The best thing she can do for gays in Russia is to be out there, visible and vocal to all of them so they know there is hope and things do get better.

    There will be a female president. And I do see an openly gay President in my lifetime. If Tim Cook can run Apple there is every reason to believe he or any gay person like him can be President.

  4. My vote for the first female president (and next president!), hands-down, is Billie Jean King. The only person I know who truly rattled Stephen Colbert! I love her. Go Billie Jean!
