Today, CNN hosted “Dear Abby” author Jeanne Phillips, who recently publicly declared her support for gay rights and received the first-ever “Straight for Equality” award from Parents and Friends of Lesbians and Gays. “I guess I just have a sense of fair play,” Phillips told CNN. “I have some wonderful gay friends and I think they should be entitled to all the civil rights everyone else has.” Watch it:

CNN also showed Phillips a recent clip of Lynne Cheney saying that people “ought to be able to enter into the relationships they want” because it is a “free country.” Phillips responded, “I never thought I’d agree with the Cheneys on anything.”
