The First Lady made an important point about the role of the Supreme Court in marriage equality while campaigning for her husband. Yesterday at a TriBeca fundraiser hosted by Robert Deniro and his wife, Mrs. Obama said "...Let us not forget what [the Supreme Court's] decisions — the impact those decisions will have on our lives for decades to come — on our privacy and security, on whether we can speak freely, worship openly, and, yes, love whomever we choose."
She made a similar statement at a fundraiser in Chelsea earlier that day this time citing how today's court decisions can affect future generations. "Let's not forget the impact [the Supreme Court's] decisions will have on our children's lives for decades to come — on their privacy and security; on whether they can speak freely, worship openly, and love whomever they choose."
Personally, I think President Obama holds the same position as his wife on gay marriage, but can't say so out loud because it would likely cost him votes and/or the Republicans would try to pull a 2004 and make it a wedge issue. Especially with their current quest for a "true conservative." But I have a feeling if he gets a second term he'll "evolve" in the right direction.
