It was an open secret that Obama’s team was looking to change his stance on Gay Marriage following his re-election. But with Joe Biden’s interview last weekend, it is now just an open fact that Obama will bring constitutional change to legalize Gay Marriage as that is the only possible way of countering what some states have already banned. It is clear that Supreme Court has been favoring states right to decide on the issue and in fact in some cases (“California”), referendums have already decided fate of such issue but is being blocked by activities judges.
Therefore, I have no doubt in my mind the only vote Gay Marriage can be legal is if Obama wins this November.
From the article:
“If there is one thing that we learned in 2008, it’s that nothing is more powerful than millions of voices calling for change.” — Barack Obama on Saturday at his campaign kickoff rally in Columbus, Ohio
The next day, Joe Biden added his voice (more or less) to the millions calling for change in the laws that ban gay marriage. Then Monday morning, Education Secretary Arne Duncan, a Chicagoan like the president, endorsed gay marriage during an MSNBC interview. Before the week is over, it is a safe bet that other prominent members of the Obama administration–when pressed by reporters–will join the chorus. That is how a social movement builds, one public conversion at a time.
