Human Rights Campaign President Cheryl Jacques made the

"Senator Kerry made clear that gay Americans should have the same basic
rights, responsibilities and protections as every other American.
"Vice President Cheney first discussed his own daughter in the context

mentioned her experience as emblematic of millions of gay Americans.
"Senator Kerry was speaking to millions of American families who have

According to the Associated Press, "Lynne Cheney accused Democratic
presidential candidate John Kerry of pulling a 'cheap and tawdry
political trick,' apparently for invoking her daughter's sexuality in
his debate with President Bush."
