see, there's the problem. hilton doesn't represent the left anymore than whatshername represents the right.
Well I'd have to disagree in part, here's why: While I'm sure there are some gay conservatives out there, I have yet to see a Gay Rights group that didn't support the Obama ticket. Hilton is an outspoken supporter for gay rights, so his agenda is more in line with the left, so in an indirect way he does represent the left, in fact a large part of its core base.
As for Miss California, I am in agreement with you, she does not represent the right. Her answer was nearly identical as Obama's on the same topic. For further clarification an example: Most blacks in California voted for Obama, yet 70% voted no to prop 8. additionally the black population has a very high percentage of religious folks among their ranks? Do they, as a group, represent the right? Hardly. Since I don't know anymore about her political views than where she stands on this one issue, I'd have to say she shares the same views as the majority of her fellow Californians, who overwhelmingly supported Obama, perhaps the nations most leftist president in history. She might bleed GOP for all we know, but unless more details come to light, for her it's inconclusive. No argument that the left wing media tries to portrays her as a surrogate of the right to pacify their gay core supporters, and some conservative would probably love to have her represent the right.
