Dear Advocate...

Obama isn't Santa Claus...

This article is somewhat interesting, and I know you're trying to sell magazines and Mr Q would be thrilled with equality for all Americans without regard to sexual orientation, but...

I think this cover sets up unrealistic expectations and will only lead to disappointment in the Obama administration...

What will HE do for YOU first???

The President-elect has a few major issues on his plate right now...actually I'm not sure things could be any worse on any front you choose to look at....

Your magazine would be a lot more useful by suggesting ideas on how every gay individual can get off his or her butt and work for their own equal rights...a better cover might be
"What will YOU do for YOU first??"

Sure we need Obama's help...and I think he WILL help...but we need to do our part...this type of journalism makes it appear its all up to him...we just sit by and wait...and if he disappoints, well, it's HIS fault...

To paraphrase JFK, "Ask not what your President-elect can do for you..."
