* When the Human Rights Campaign and the LOGO cable channel joined to host 
the first-ever nationally televised U.S. presidential forum on LGBT issues, six 
Democratic candidates answered the call.  Before a live audience on August 
9th, they tackled a wide range of issues, including HIV/AIDS and healthcare 
reform; national policy and legislative matters like "Don't Ask, Don't Tell," the 
Defense of Marriage Act, the Employment Non-Discrimination Act, and hate crime 
protections; the complexities of religion and morality in politics; and the 
civil unions versus marriage debate. "This Way Out" aired excerpts from the 
remarks of New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson and former Alaska Senator Mike 
Gravel last time.  One of the other Democratic presidential hopefuls has become 
well known in the queer community for saying that he's "on a journey" regarding 
marriage equality.  Panelists JONATHAN CAPEHART of the "Washington Post," 
lesbian rock icon MELISSA ETHERIDGE, and HRC Executive Director JOE SOLMONESE 
tried to map the journey of former NORTH CAROLINA SENATOR and 2004 Vice 
Presidential candidate JOHN EDWARDS, with the able guidance of moderator MARGARET 
CARLSON of Bloomberg News.   First-term ILLINOIS SENATOR BARACK OBAMA is a big 
crowd-pleaser, but that didn't stop the forum panelists from also holding his feet 
to the fire on marriage equality and other key issues (this 3-part series 
concludes next time with Congressman Dennis Kucinich and Senator Hillary Clinton).
