"Tucson transgender woman now serving Obama administration"
According to the Boston Herald, Obama has just appointed the first openly transgender woman to federal government. This week Amanda Simpson began serving as a senior technical advisor to the Department of Commerce.
I think the most fascinating part of this story is a quote that said "It shows that this president is serious about hiring an administration that looks like this country." The other fascinating part for me was that I never knew there was a National Center for Transgender Equality. Despite the gay roommates, classmates, co-workers and dating a girl who lived on Greenwich Street for a year, my ignorance to the gay community is still vast and wide.
I tell you one thing, this man is covering his bases for 2012 hotdamnit! He already made a huge impact amongst women and Latinos with Judge Sonia Sotomayor, who's most controversial attribute was the enunciation of her last name. At this rate, this Obama dude will lock down most of the majority vote by the end of this year. He's shown he has resolve on war, the economy is a constant focus, and he's keeping to his withdrawal and healthcare campaign commitments.... best he can....despite that evil party in the house that wont support him.........................THE DEMOCRATS!!!
Yeah I said it!!
