Yes.

Why?

It would have to be because I mostly agree with them on the issues and believe they are capable of doing a good job. Their sexual orientation would really have nothing to do with it.

It could happen in my lifetime, but probably not until I'm an old man.

I would vote for a gay blind muslim with no legs and tourettes who went to a community college just because it would be a nice change

Hmmm, apparently two people have voted against a gay president, but they've chosen not to add any comments/justification for their choice. Too bad.

If he/she ran on the Republican ticket and was conservative, I very well could. I am just avidly pro-life so I could not vote for any kind of liberal.


So I guess what I'm saying, in other words, is no.

Given how the current president and his predecessor both endorsed disastrous policies, I would vote for just about anybody who was competent and was more about simply running the country intelligently rather than ramming a specific agenda down the collective throats of the country. I think Bush was a total disaster as president and Obama will ultimately prove that way as well.

Yes, it's very sad that I hold a different view than you.

In this particular case, yes, it is.

Get over it. Don't host a poll and ask for explanations if you can't take it, child.
