Maybe someday we’ll let go of our death-grip on the strict two-party only system we have in this country. And before anyone bleats that we have other parties, when it comes down to it, you have either a Republican or Democratic president and either a Democratically controlled Congress or a Republican controlled one.

For their part, the Western Conservative Summit organizers said they never invited the the Log Cabin Republicans to their Denver conference the first place, and said in an online statement that “they chose to make a news story of it.”
