Bill Clinton, Prop 8, Manchester Grand Hyatt


It would seem that former President Bill Clinton will be putting his support from corporate sponsors first over basic human rights and dignity.

Clinton will likely cross picket lines when he delivers a keynote speech at the Manchester Grand Hyatt in downtown San Diego this Sunday, February 15th.

For several weeks, union officials and gay rights activists behind a boycott of the hotel because of its support of and donation of 125 thousand dollars to Prop 8, urged Clinton to cancel his appearance before the International Franchise Association.

“He’s obviously sympathetic to this cause,” Clinton spokesman Matthew McKenna said, “I don’t think you can name a leader in the world who has done more to advance gay and lesbian issues.

Hmmm. Let us take stock: On his watch we have the famous “Don’t ask, don’t tell,” which did nothing to advance and did more harm then good, plus there’s “The Defense of Marriage Act” on his watch too, oh that’s really an advancement.

Now we can add this to his advancement of gay issues.
