    Kathy Potts, an evangelical Christian and former Iowa committee chairwoman for the Rick Perry campaign, talks about the epiphany that has her supporting marriage equality

    "Potts thinks that Perry received “poor counsel” on the commercial, and she continues to feel he would have been the best candidate among the Republican field on LGBT issues.

    “I think the fact that you could have a conversation with him and maybe sway him with it,” she said. “I think he would be open minded. I think he could change.”

    When Perry left the race following a weak showing in Iowa, Potts failed to develop a similar affinity for any of the remaining candidates. She worked for Mitt Romney in 2008 but said she "caught him in too many lies" to continue with the campaign. The ascent of Rick Santorum, who suspended his bid on Tuesday, "shocked" her, given that she found the former Pennsylvania senator’s inclination to judge people and set strict limits on contraception “repulsive.”

    “Santorum is such a whiner,” she said. “He’s just way out there.”

    Potts said that her dissatisfaction with the Republican presidential field would “probably” lead her to consider voting for President Barack Obama. "

    Says the woman who ran the Rick Perry campaign in Iowa ---- Credible? I think not. icon_rolleyes.gif But, good for her that she had an epiphany about Gay Marriage. I wonder if the person she may vote for, Obama, will ever have the same epiphany?

    I think it's adorable the way you try to hold the President to some standard regarding marriage issues that you would never dream of applying to your own candidates.

    I also liked the fact that Todd thinks that this woman isnt credible about Romney even though she actually WORKED for him in '08 yet Todd seems to think he IS Romney!

    I guess since it's a matter of choosing two different candidates who fail at having the same epiphany, then we can safely vote for the one that won't perpetuate the downward spiral into fiscal ruin.

    I'm actually glad to hear you say that, Twinkles. I assume you're voting for Obama then.
