Why or why not? Do you feel it's actually possible in your lifetime?

I'd vote for whomever I thought could do the best job. His/her bedroom is neither my concern nor my business.

Why not? If I feel they can do the job, more power to them.

It's a hang-up for some people, so I wanted to get some opinions.

Why not. I think it is possible that in our lifetime a homosexual candidate could be nominated to be president, but I'd doubt could win. There is still that negative connotation attached to homosexuality in the public, especially with religious people.

I think it is because some people can not get their mind out of the bedroom, because thats what it boils down to, homosexuality is what happens in the bedroom (not exclusive) but on a whole and not a lot of people can see past that. To me what your sexual preference is means nothing to me, what is in your mind does.
