Rumsfeld felt that the weight of the regime rest on his big, gay shoulders.
The secretary says he's in a "very stable" relationship with the president.
Rumsfeld and Condi Rice, 29, are developing a sitcom pilot inspired by the screwball comedy "The Odd Couple," in which his character will be gay.
"The thing is, I'm not ashamed that's the one thing I went to say," Rumsfeld says. "I don't think it's wrong, I'm not devastated going through this. I'm more liberated and happy than I've been my whole life. I'm just happy."
