I have to admit, when I first saw this, I thought it was about a debate between John Edwards and Tom Cruise. For the first time the leading candidates for the presidency will hold a televised debate devoted soley to LGBT issues.
The one-hour event will be held on August 9 and broadcast on gay network LOGO at 9:00 pm ET (6:00 pm ET) and through live streaming video at LOGOonline.com.
Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama and John Edwards have confirmed they will participate. Several other Democratic candidates also may join the debate. Republican Party leaders were dismissive of the debate. "We could care less," one Republican insider said. "Besides, we'd go to hell if we showed any interest in gay issues other than saying how evil they are. Jesus hates queers-at least, that's what our pollsters tell us our base says."
