Hillary and Ellen

Hillary Clinton was a guest on Ellen yesterday, and, although I haven't generally been in the habit of posting talk show appearances of the various candidates, I watch all of them (even John McCain—grumble), and I thought this one was worth posting because the two Dem candidates' positions on gay rights have been the subject of much debate around here recently, and Hillary spoke to Ellen about gay rights and told a very personal story about people who influenced her support of equality and fairness (love that framing!). She also spoke about an objective that I thought would be of interest to a lot of Shakers: Making breast cancer curable in the next decade.

There's also a very amusing bit where the two of them talk about how Chris Matthews is a groping pigman.
