    Hillary Clinton Endorses Same-Sex Marriage

    Saying that “gay rights are human rights,’’ Hillary Rodham Clinton, the former secretary of state and potential 2016 presidential candidate, has endorsed same-sex marriage.“I believe America is at its best when we champion the freedom and dignity of every human being,’’ Mrs. Clinton said in a video posted Monday on the Internet by the Human Rights Campaign, a gay rights advocacy group. Her announcement comes as the Supreme Court is about to hear two landmark gay rights cases that advocates hope will make same-sex marriage legal in all 50 states.
    Mrs. Clinton had not previously come out in favor of same-sex marriage, but she did take steps to protect gay couples when she was secretary of state, work that she said “inspired me to think anew” about the values she held.
    “L.G.B.T. 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,’’ she said in the six-minute video, using the abbreviation for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender. “That includes marriage.’’

    So now Hill Dog has endorsed SSM. Its only a matter of time because this becomes legal and civil rights are passed for all regardless of sexuality.

    "'Only a matter of time"? Like, less than a year. The Supreme Court granted cert. There will almost certainly be an opinion about the constitutional protections of SSM in 2013. The fight is pretty much already over. The finish line is within sight.

    And good for her. For such a forward thinking and "champion" of democracy, it is hard to believe that the United States has taken so long to get even to this point.

    Of course she does! Rumors been around for years that she only married Bill for political purposes and let him cat around 'cause he wasn't getting any at home. just look at all the gay members of her personal staff.

    Definitely a convenient time for people to be signing on for it. It's easy now.
