I dont understand really why it should matter that she is gay, I hope she was picked because she was the best not just she is gay.
What is your take?
HOUSTON – Houston became the largest U.S. city to elect an openly gay mayor, with voters handing a solid victory to City Controller Annise Parker after a hotly contested runoff.
Several other U.S. cities, including Portland, Ore., Providence, R.I., and Cambridge, Mass., have openly gay mayors, but none are as large as Houston.
"This election has changed the world for the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered community. Just as it is about transforming the lives of all Houstonians for the better, and that's what my administration will be about," Parker told supporters after her opponent, Gene Locke, conceded defeat.

Frankly, I do not care to know about anyone's (other than my spouse) sexual preference- Will that affect their performance/ ability as a mayor?
