The article presents an interview with Patrick Sammon, recently appointed the head of the Log Cabin Republicans. When asked whether he believes that gay Americans will be better off with a Democratic majority in the House and Senate, he says that some issues will be considered by this Congress that weren't considered before. He disagrees with the statement that the passing off former President Gerald Ford marked the end of moderate Republicans, citing the growing frustration among party members regarding the tilt to the right on social issues. He also comments on the recent flip-flops by presidential candidates Mitt Romney and John McCain.
