Senator Clinton reaches out to gays
Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton told the Human Rights Campaign in an unplublicized speech that she wants a partnership with gays if elected president.
Clinton also said she opposes the ``don't ask, don't tell'' policy pertaining to gays in the military that was instituted during Mr. Clinton's presidency. Before that, gays were stictly prohibited from serving in the military at all.
This is the first effort from any Democratic presidential candidate to reach out to the LGBT community. Republican contender Rudy Guiliani, on the other hand, openly supports gay marriage.
