Someone finally asks Hillary "the question."

It was The Advocate, of course:

Kennedy asks the senator directly whether she is a lesbian. Not because he thinks she is, but just because nobody ever has the balls to ask it to her face — and really, why should it be a hard question to ask? It's not insulting. “People say a lot of things about me, so I really don’t pay any attention to it,” Hillary tells him blithely. “It’s not true, but it is something that I have no control over. People will say what they want to say.”

Here is how the Advocate describes Hillary's love for gays, but not for gay marraige:

"Like a blushing schoolgirl, we take the varsity jock’s flirtations at face value, deluding ourselves into believing he’s going to ask us to the prom," explains editor Sean Kennedy. "When in reality he’s just using us to get to our sexy friend who will actually put out." (Hey, there’s a reason these people write all the cleverest shows on television.) Some hopeful gay voters take her carefully worded objections to marriage equality and interpret them as hints that she really, deep down, believes in it.

Ok, so...Hillary is the varsity jock here? Alrighty then.
