Many headlines are referencing her sexual orientation, continuing an ongoing media obsession with labels. The thing is, it doesn't seem to be a primary issue for her, and for more than a decade now, it hasn't been an issue for voters, despite the recent efforts of some Locke supporters. She's a moderate Democrat with conservative fiscal tendencies, and that combination has translated into electoral success.
