Why Hillary Clinton’s Support for Marriage Equality Matters

Written by scott on March 18th, 2013

Hillary ClintonGreg Sargent at the The Washington Post thinks it’s more than just the words themselves that matter here:

In confirming that no Dem presidential candidate will ever be viable without embracing marriage equality, Clinton is sending a strong message to the Court that the American public is ready to embrace it. What’s more, note when it comes to the legal right to marriage for gay and lesbian Americans, Clinton’s language is unequivocal:

“LGBT Americans are our colleagues, our teachers, our soldiers, our friends, our loved ones — and they are full and equal citizens, and deserve the rights of citizenship. That includes marriage. That’s why I support marriage for lesbian and gay couples. I support it personally and as a matter of policy and law, embedded in a broader effort to advance equality and opportunity for LGBT Americans and for all Americans.”
