“Yes, he needs that expertise and help. He’s straight. He doesn’t have the experience to understand all the issues facing the LGBT community. But he realizes that he should do it, and I think he will.”

“He won’t target a member of the LGBT community to be in his cabinet. He won’t base his selection on someone’s gender identity or sexual preference. He’ll choose the candidate with the best qualifications. He won’t pander to the LGBT community when making his decisions.”

“He’s looking for the most qualified person. He’s not looking for re-election. I don’t think he’ll be unduly influenced by political pressure. If he does appoint an LGBT person, we probably won’t even know about it. It will just remain private.”

“Yes. It would be a big step for civil rights. There’s a lot more acceptance for the LGBT community. But it would still be a heroic thing for Obama to do. There are many qualified LGBT people to choose from. He’ll certainly be able to meet — if not exceed — people’s expectations.”
