Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton released a video today announcing her support for gay marriage. You can watch it above. She says that gay rights are human rights, and human rights are gay rights.
Why the flurry of announcements from politicos concerning gay marriage? It has everything to do with the Supreme Court’s deliberations about gay marriage. The Court will hear oral arguments this month and will render a decision this June. Gay activist groups are doing a full-court press to get as many supporters on record as possible. The hope seems to be that the court will be swayed by these ringing endorsements. We will know whether their efforts have worked soon enough.
