Our First Gay President?

Posted: Updated:

History was made in 2008 when the United States elected its first African-American President -- Barack Obama. But cut to 2011 and for the first time in history, the United States has its first openly gay Presidential candidate -- Fred Karger. And I had to meet him. And not only to see how he stacked up against the other candidates, but also make sure this "gay Presidential hopeful" wasn't simply a myth or a fairy tale. Pun intended.
