Barney Frank Shows Off Custom Wedding Ring, Talks Rick Santorum On 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' (VIDEO)

U.S Representative Barney Frank is considered by most to be the most prominent gay politician in the country. He brought his fiancee, who's a welder and has little to do with Frank's political world, with him to "Jimmy Kimmel Live" (Weeknights, 12 a.m. EST on ABC), where he got to show off his handiwork.

Kimmel noticed that the wedding ring Frank was wearing was black, which is certainly an unusual color choice. Frank explained that it was an idea his fiancee Jim had come up with to represent the very real world of welding that Jim lives in. "I live as an elected official that's got some reality to it, but occasionally floats away from what would be the real world," Frank said. "And this is a reminder ... of the real world."

When asked his opinion of the remaining candidates for President in the Republic field, Frank was quick to say, "I think we can beat Rick Santorum, even if the devil stays out of it."

But regardless of who the Republican party nominates to run against President Obama, Frank feels confident. "I don't think any of the winners of this Republican mudslide are going to defeat the President," he said.

Catch "Jimmy Kimmel Live" every weeknight at 12 a.m. EST on ABC.
