I thought it was a tactical error for Kerry to bring her up. It didn't add anything to his answer.
On the other hand, the whole response to the question seemed shallow. The question itself plays into the view that as long as being gay is a choice, it is ok to deny gay people some civil rights. Given the wide range of human sexual inclinations and our tendency to experiment, some degree of sexual behavior must be chosen.
Since Bush was not going to follow the views of the religious right on national television, they were going to sound very similar in their answers. More subtly on Kerry's part would have put him ahead.
I agree it was unnecessary to bring a specific person's condition into a political discussion, especially without their permission. But, if the Cheney parents were even slightly honest about the situation, they would not be using their daughter's sexual orientation for political purposes either. Cheney is well aware of what kind of additional attention this would bring to his daughter and if he and his wife truly felt the way they say they do a personal request to Kerry to keep their daughter out of the campaign rhetoric would have been much more effective and sincere. By acting hurt about this, the Cheney's have pumped up the attention level, which is prolonging the discomfort if there is any to their daughter. The daughter is an adult, let her speak for herself. I am sure Kerry and Edwards would respect a personal request from any of them not single her out again.
