No. 8: Dorian Lord, One Life to Live
Dr. Dorian Lord (Robin Strasser) lived a long and colorful life as one of Llanview’s leading citizens on One Life to Live, so when she decided to run for mayor against longtime rival Viki Buchanan (Erika Slezak), citizens knew they were in for a rollercoaster ride. Dorian campaigned on a marriage equality platform, in a storyline that dovetailed with the Kish romance. Proving there's no such thing as going to far to win your base, heterosexual Dorian married a woman to get elected!
In the end, Mayor Lord did such a good job in Llanview’s highest office, the Pennsylvania governor asked her to fill in for a senator caught in a scandal. Here's hoping Senator Lord is giving 'em hell on the Hill.
