President Obama on the Ellen Show talking about the LGBT progress.

I thought that was both a very sweet and very accurate comment that President Obama made about the contribution Ellen has made in gaining acceptance for LGBT folks in this country.

These are the kinds of very real moments that let us know just what kind of guy is representing us in the White House.

    I'm going to miss President Obama and First Lady Michelle in the White House

      That's exactly what I thought of when I saw this clip.

      For many I suspect it will be like Joni Mitchell's lyrics:

      Don't it always seem to go
      That you don't know what you've got
      Till it's gone

  2. Ellen was tearing up. Sweet. How not to be touched when Barack tells you that. I am tearing up and I'm not gay or Ellen. Her response was terrific and funny.

    Me too!

    Plus, they are an outstanding couple in how they have shown their love and respect, to and for, each other for the past years.

    Also, cannot forget that they are outstanding parents and have two very smart, attractive and respectful daughters.

    They have been great examples to all of us and I think President Obama will go down in history as one of the best presidents in our history.

    Holy shit. Scalia dead?

    Could this be true? No other news site is reporting this.

    4. Yes it is true. Huffpo has it as the headline story now (but not much information yet).

    OMG..praise the lord. Now if we could just kill off Thomas while Obama is still here.
    Back to the article...yeah, I would vote for this man to represent this country forever, period. He along with his wife saved us, literally...saved us. I also love the fact Grandma was there the entire 8 years which allowed Michelle to really do her best work without worrying. I know as a single mom with 2 toddlers...I was able to run a lumber yard which paid extremely well because of my mom. Ellen deserves the credit he gave her...she is a gift to all of us.

    Two of the votes I was most proud to cast on my favorite talk show. Ellen is an amazingly thoughtful woman, has given much to humanitarian causes, she even opened one of her houses to the firemen in California so they could shower, nap, eat, wash their clothes, etc before going back out again. She gives to all kinds of causes, not just LGBT. In short, She and President are cut from the same cloth. I'll miss him when he leaves office, but something tells me he's destined to do even greater things.
    He's been through the wringer, and not one scandal, impropriety or illegal actions have been exposed, and if ever there was a climate for that, the GOP we have is IT. Gee, let's drag out benghazi and have investigations, again. That's all they have. Thank you, President Obama for standing on the right side of every issue, especially marriage equality. Love is Love.

      I agree with you, Anita W.

    I remember when she came out on her sitcom in 1997 and she was SHUNNED. Look what being true to yourself, and love can do. She is the epitome.

    "Be Kind To One Another."
    Love you, Ellen. One of many.

    I love that the President did this. I love who they both are. I love how moved she seemed to be about his praise, but then to keep the show funny she said "I'm not really gay," and the President right away said "but you play one on TV" -- so it was both witty and serious.

    So good.
