Again, I re-iterate that looking at this from the angle of "They're LGBT, so did that play a role in their hiring?" is an unecessarily restricted view. It is no different than many appointments that were made in the previous 8 years just because the appointee was a conservative. The question of whether someone brings the appropriate experience and knowledge is one that should be put forth of any nomination or appointment, and should not be framed exclusively around the LGBT issue.
