Andrea Mitchell, Gay Icon?

The NY Observer thinks so. Sure, there’s Rachel Maddow and that wry smile, there’s Anderson Cooper and his silver foxiness, but Andrea … she’s got something else. But what was it?

Last night I watched Prayers For Bobby and while the movie stayed true to the schlocky Lifetime formula of crisis-dissent-tragedy-redemption, overall I thought the film was OK, but only for its primary intended audience – the bible-clutching housewives of middle America.
