I feel he’s gotten a lot more criticism in his first year than he deserved. People expected things to happen more quickly than they have, but it’s just been a year and you can’t get everything at once. Being a gay woman, I feel that, under his influence, a lot of the population has become more liberal-minded with regard to gay rights. I see a lot of good things happening, and I haven’t been disappointed at all.
