Today's Must Read: Judging the best presidential candidate for gays

By Diane Silver

Kerry Eleveld has posted the best analysis I've seen, yet, on whether Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama or John Edwards would make the best president for LGBT Americans. Eleveld is the news editor of The Advocate. She frames the question in an interesting way.

The question for LGBT voters seems not to be which of these candidates is more supportive of gay issues – they have all conducted more LGBT outreach than previous politicians in their shoes. It’s more a matter of which candidate one believes will achieve the best results – the strategist, the bridge-builder, or the journeyer.
