McCain "Clarifies" Gay Adoption Comments

This came from Scott Tucker of the Log Cabin Republicans:

I want to make sure you saw this clarification from the McCain campaign on the issue of gay adoption:

"McCain could have been clearer in the interview in stating that his position on gay adoption is that it is a state issue, just as he made it clear in the interview that marriage is a state issue. He was not endorsing any federal legislation.

McCain’s expressed his personal preference for children to be raised by a mother and a father wherever possible. However, as an adoptive father himself, McCain believes children deserve loving and caring home environments, and he recognizes that there are many abandoned children who have yet to find homes. McCain believes that in those situations that caring parental figures are better for the child than the alternative," - Jill Hazelbaker, Director of Communications

Hope that's all clear to you.
