Ellen DeGeneres Pressures McCain

mccain.jpgEllen DeGeneres has proven once again what a classy lady she is. After hearing that Presidential hopeful John McCain, a known conservatist, was going to appear on her show Thursday, everyone began talking about the two duking it out on-stage about the gay marriage issue. The timing is appropriate as well as Ellen has just announced her pending nuptials to Portia de Rossi. The two obviously have two very different views and it’s nice to see how Ellen handles herself extremely well, put McCain under some pressure and got her point across very well while remaining dignified about the entire conversation. Here is some of that interview provided by US,

“I just believe in the unique status of marriage between man and woman,” McCain said. “And I know that we have a respectful disagreement on that issue.”

DeGeneres, who has campaigned for Hillary Clinton, compared a ban on gay marriage to the time when “blacks and women did not have the right to vote.

“We are all the same people, all of us,” said DeGeneres, who just celebrated her 50th birthday party. “You’re no different than I am. Our love is the same.”

McCain responded: “People should be able to enter into legal agreements, and I think that is something we should encourage, particularly in the case of insurance and other areas.”

Keeping the senator on the hot seat, DeGeneres replied, “When someone says, ‘You can have a contract, and you’ll still have insurance and you’ll get all that, it sounds to me like saying, ‘Well you can sit there; you can’t sit there.

“It doesn’t feel inclusive… it feels… isolated,” she added.

McCain admitted that DeGeneres’ argument was “in a very eloquent fashion,” and that he “along with many, many others, wish [her] every happiness.”

DeGeneres told McCain she was “planning on having a ceremony this summer anyway, even though it wasn’t legal.

“Then it just happened that I legally now can get married, like everyone should,” DeGeneres said.

“We just have a disagreement,” continued McCain.

“So, you’ll walk me down the aisle?” DeGeneres joked.

McCain responded: “Touche.”

Not only is it good to see celebrities taking a stand for something that is truly important to them but it’s also nice to know that not all celebs think that they need to go Rosie O’Donnell and start screaming and slandering everything in sight. Nicely put, Ellen. Keep fighting the good fight.
