There's something about Ellen that's just getting better and better. It used to be that she didn't talk about her "personal life." And we all know what that means. But lately, she's been putting herself out there, and her beliefs, a little bit more. Since the California ruling that will allow gays and lesbians to marry in that state, she has been bubbling over with excitement, as has her audience, with talk about marrying her long time (and hot!) girlfriend, reading up on Modern Bride (sarcasm) and today, she's set to interview John McCain. The old Ellen wouldn't have asked about the gay marriage equation. But I think now that Ellen is experiencing it—the ability to get married—it's like she's blooming and becoming fully authentic with us her viewers and audience. She's putting herself out there.
This is a great clip. Great for Ellen's articulate and plain-as-day questions, and incredibly telling as McCain really has no response or anything to offer for his rationale, except for noting they respectfully disagree on this topic. You know why? Because he has no valid rationale. There is none. And I'm glad these questions leave him speechless.
