Last night I heard the best reason yet why Democrats should rally behind whoever wins the party’s nomination for president. It came from Rep. Kyrsten Sinema, Arizona’s first openly lesbian state legislator.
Sinema, one of Barack Obama’s campaign “surrogates,” was among about 100 people who attended the town hall meeting hosted by National Stonewall Democrats at Station 4 in Dallas.
I ran into Sinema on the sidewalk in front of S4 before the event, where she was trying to put Obama stickers “on anything that moves.” Turns out, Sinema lives just a few miles from likely Republican nominee John McCain in Phoenix, and apparently she’s not too fond of her neighbor.
“He looks like death on a Triscuit,” Sinema said. “I think it’s incredibly important that we [Democrats] win.”
