Romney and Gays

A Mitt Romney quote from 1994, in which he says the gay and lebian community "needs more support from the Republican Party," may haunt him in his efforts to win the presidency.

Probably not. The only aggressive anti-gay candidates are Brownback and Tancredo, and neither has a great shot at the WH (despite some strange musings at TNR this week about the former). SSM is still a hot issue, sure, but as far as respect for and civility towards the gay community goes, the biggest names -- Giuliani, McCain, even Gingrich -- know that pandering to homophobes ain't gonna cut it anymore.
