This is a fascinating exchange. As much as I think Mitt Romney’s position on same sex marriage is ludicrous and reprehensible, he handles a potentially volatile situation rather well.
He unknowingly steps into a potential lion’s den and emerges relatively unscathed.
And the Vietnam veteran who challenges Romney on same sex marriage also conducts himself exceptionally well. While he finds Romney’s position on same sex marriage equally reprehensible, he credits the GOP candidate for engaging honestly in the discussion.
It’s not often that you see two men with completely divergent thoughts engage in civil, reasoned discourse in front of the cameras during a political campaign.
It was refreshing.
