Cheney in Ad with Obama?
A multimedia ad campaign pushing a bipartisan message of support for marriage equality is set to launch Wednesday, a $1 million effort of the Respect for Marriage Coalition — a combined group of LGBT, other civil rights and labor organizations.
“None of us would want to be told we can’t marry the person we love. That’s why a growing majority of Americans believe it’s time to allow marriage for gay and lesbian couples,” the Respect for Marriage Coalition’s new television ad begins.
It then goes on to show a bipartisan group of national political figures — former First Lady Laura Bush, former Secretary of Defense Colin Powell, former Vice President Dick Cheney and, finally, President Barack Obama — stating their support for the right of same-sex couples to marry.
