I don’t know about you but I am sending my thanks to Michelle tonight!
Today, President Obama of the US, most powerful person on the planet, agreed that all couples should have the right to marry.
Like so many others who have made this journey – from Bill Clinton to Laura Bush, most recently Vice President Biden, and a majority of the American people – President Obama has come to know loving and committed gay couples.
It’s telling these personal stories that makes the most differernce, and that has always beethe philosophy of this blog.
The President’s announcement of support today marks a historic turning point for our freedom to marry movement.
Yet there is much left to be done. Forty-four American states and 200 countries globally continue to exclude same-sex couples from marriage.
