In these troubled times, does former Ambassador to Denmark Rufus Gifford have a political future in the United States? I say yes, but conservative Sørine Gotfredsen says no.

Senator Jeff Sessions may have a good resume. But he could be on the wrong side of history. Born in Selma, Alabama, he was a Republican student body president on Bloody Sunday in 1965. Instead of promoting justice for all, he may prefer justice for the few. Read my article in Kongressen.com (In Danish).

Ambassador Rufus Gifford is a role model. “One of the biggest struggles you have as a young, gay person is figuring out how to be comfortable in your own skin,” he said. “I mean, you would lie in bed at night when you were 15, 16, 17 years old and just figure out if there was some way to escape your body.” Read his story in USA Today.
