Like most Americans, I love Ellen. She is funny, inspirational and kind to others.
Oh, and if everyone cares, she is gay.
As the new JC Penney spokesperson, there is a whole bunch of people who decide they aren't shopping at JC Penney because Ellen is gay. If you haven't seen this, take five minutes and wait to be inspired:
"I want to be clear and here are the values that I stand for. I stand for honesty, equality, kindness, compassion, treating people the way you want to be treated, and helping those in need. To me those are traditional values. That's what I stand for."
I think Ellen should run for President...
