    Sadly there is another post that fails to understand what exactly Hillary Clinton’s job is. In an earlier post Ann, in response to Hillary’s It Gets Better video, argued that Hillary should be pushing the Obama administration to take a pro gay marriage stance, yet did not even mention that Obama had not at that time made a video in support. Furthermore, as Secretary of State Hillary handles FOREIGN affairs which explains why she is out of the U.S. so much. Gay marriage in the U.S. is a DOMESTIC issue. Hillary Clinton made the video out of compassion and not political necessity. She has also fought back and condemned anti-gay violence world wide (see Uganada) which is within her job.
    As for her gay marriage stance, Hillary works for Obama. The Obama administration is anti-gay marriage, therefore when she talks about the U.S. stance on that issue, she is going to take the stance of her boss.
    So next time people feel like attacking Hillary, maybe we should follow the trail back a little further and place that scrutiny where it firmly belongs.
