Secretary Clinton: ‘It Gets Better’

Secretary Clinton takes time to join the chorus of voices telling LGBT youth that it gets better. I think the video, and the fact that she took time to tape it, speaks for itself, but I’ll just add how impressed I am with her willingness to speak out on these issues.

NOTE FROM JOHN: Let me add something.  What is the Secretary of State doing making a video about gay youth in America?  Don’t get me wrong, this is fabulous that Hillary did this, and it’s a wonderful video.  But if the Obama administration were going to have a Secretary do a video, you’d think they’d pick the Secretary of HHS, not the Secretary of State.  Unless, of course, Hillary chose to do this all by herself, which is what I suspect.  I’m impressed.  And still waiting for the video from her boss.  Though, in his case, he’s going to have a hard time telling kids it gets better when he’s not doing nearly enough to help it get better.
