Hillary Clinton gave a speech before a group of homosexual rights activists, and promised them the moon, the sun, and the stars.
Of course, when the time came, she refused to have any coverage of the speech...and when asked why not, she blamed her campaign.
Yep, that's it.
Clinton vows White House alliance with gay activists
WASHINGTON - Democratic presidential hopeful Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton of New York told the nation's leading gay rights group in an unpublicized speech that she wants a partnership with gays if elected president.
Clinton also said she opposes the "don't ask, don't tell" policy regarding gays in the military that was instituted during her husband's presidency.
"I am proud to stand by your side," Clinton said in a keynote speech Friday to the Human Rights Campaign. Neither Clinton's campaign nor her Senate office made any announcement that she would be making the Friday address.
Asked twice at a Monday campaign stop in Iowa why she did not publicize her speech to the group, Clinton said: "You'll have to ask my campaign."
In the speech, Clinton joked that she shares the same initials as the group, and pledged to maintain the same close working relationship that last year helped defeat the federal amendment which would have banned same-sex marriage.
"I want you to know that this is exactly the kind of partnership we will have when I am president," Clinton told the group.
"I want you to know that just as you always have an open door to my Senate office, you will always have an open door to the White House and together we can continue this journey."
Notice that this story played no where. Maybe the American media is just realizing that Hillary Clinton can not be elected, as we have been predicting for some time here, and note that what she promises won't be happening no matter what she says.
