McCain strategist supports same-sex marriage..
Good for him....more conservatives need to embrace same-sex marriage, which is a very conservative notion...
Steve Schmidt, chief strategist for U.S. Sen. John McCain’s (R-Ariz.) presidential campaign, came out in favor of marriage rights for same-sex couples in an interview with the Blade last week while urging the Republican Party to be more inclusive of gays and lesbians.I have always thought of same-sex marriage as a very conservative issue. Promoting marriage is conservative - whether it's same-sex or opposite sex.
“I’m personally supportive of [marriage] equality for gay couples and I believe that it will happen over time,” he said. “I think that more and more Americans are insistent that, at a minimum, gay couples should be treated with respect and when they see a political party trying to stigmatize a group of people who are hardworking, who play by the rules, who raise decent families, they’re troubled by it.”
