Bashed Ann Coulter, advocated that public schools teach about same-sex parents and denied the claim of former consultant Bob Schrum that he is uncomfortable around homosexuals. Drew audience applause for recanting his past statement that his opposition to same-sex marriage stemmed in part from his religious beliefs, but forthrightly reaffirmed that opposition without explaining why. (Amazingly, Edwards was not asked about his wife's public support for legalized marriage.) Heatedly repudiated the Defense of Marriage Act and the original implementation of the "don't ask, don't tell" military policy adopted during the presidential administration of the frontrunner's husband.
