Obama seems to be on a special mission in his in progress African trip. He is using his global fame to re-launch the old infamous song namely gay rights to Africa. It worked very well for him during the second term contest and he thinks it will do the same in Africa. The Senegalese leader did the right thing teling Obama off on the sport but I think he should have said more once and for all. Anyhow I have feelings that Obama learnt his lessons with a price to his seemingly spotless career as one of the few leaders who donít make stupid miscalculation mistakes.

Maybe it is because Obama is gay too.
