I read the piece, and think it is too much grasping at straws - not as to anything dealing with the good Senator's orientation - but more so the theory itself is rather bunkish. He notes Graham has been doing this "year after year" with no hopes for higher office. The guy hasn't even been a U.S. Senator for one term yet - and even still many people think he really yearns to be V.P., he had a very good chance to be on the U.S. Supreme court if he had wanted and a lot of people believe he is such a staunch supporter of McCain in hopes of an invitation to the ticket. By this theory (as there are only really 2 higher offices than U.S. Senator) there are a lot of gay U.S. Senators out there because so many are A. in office and B. do the talk show circuit - and are unlikely at this time to reach higher office. Graham may well be on the don't ask don't tell policy - but this theory holds very little water.
I have wondered why he kept working on getting such a high profile while not appearing to define if he has greater designs, and if so what.I do wonder about the line of though about his aiming for VP, and the warm glass of spit that it is.
Gettting a high profile before could have been for the 1 term he has run for thus far as Senator. As for the V.P. itself, yes indeed - not necessarily worthwhile (though Cheney was arguably a de facto pres for much of the time between 2001-to mid 2006. However of 42 persons who have served as our 43 Presidents 14 of them were previously VP's
