In this clip, James Duke Mason -- aka "Dukey," the (
openly comfortably gay) teenage son of Belinda Carlisle and grandson of James Mason -- reports that his rocker mom is mad about endorsing Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton for president. (Like I need another reason to love Babe!) It's so sweet to see what a smart, poised and well-spoken kid he is. His parents (Dad is Morgan Mason, a former Reagan staffer) obviously did a good job raising him. After watching this I was talking to my friend Mark -- my partner in crime back in our Go-Go's stalking days -- and we couldn't help but wonder how different things must be for kids coming out in today's world versus a generation ago. It's a joy to see the progress as demonstrated by outspoken young people like Dukey. Check out the rest of his politics etc. vlog here.
