Finland may get its first openly gay president.

I have often “bragged” about how Sweden has had an openly gay member of parliment for decades.

I guess we are just not as hysterical  up here.

Politics should be about more than one issue but it still drives a point home.

The US still hasnt had even one single person, woman…or for that matter gay president.

Sure, president Obama plays an important symbolic role but i´m still waiting for the day when it is just as likely for a president to be a crossdresser named Goldman as a married protestant or Catholic ,value conservative ,white guy with an Anglophone name.

When politics actually ARE about issues…..ONLY issues.
