I can’t believe it’s finally happened, but Obama’s declaration of support for same-sex marriage is huge. I read an interesting comment somewhere describing how this is a very good political move. The reasoning was that he won’t lose too many votes over this but will energize his base.
I agree that it’s a good move. I think he’s had a good first term, but the cold reality of US politics always deadens people’s hopes and expectations. With this one statement, even if he does nothing to change federal policy, I feel much better about him.
