MUST WATCH: A Politician Loses It And Restores My Faith In Humanity

10 years ago, Minnesota state Rep. Lynne Osterman made a politically expedient mistake. Now she's trying to fix it.

  • At :32, she makes a great point.
  • At :58, she goes to a brave place almost no politician ever does.
  • At 1:30, she talks about family and brings her truth hammer.
  • At 2:07, she asks the question we're all asking, then makes us laugh.
  • At 2:51, she calls out all of those who would vote "no" on equality.
  • And at 3:13, she breaks my heart and puts everything into perspective.

In case you are curious, the bill supporting marriage equality passed in committee. It still has a way to go to become law. :D
