And it turned out a lot better than that one!

President Obama made history Wednesday, becoming the first sitting president to come out in support of legal same-sex marriage.

In an interview with ABC News, Obama said, “I’ve just concluded that for me personally it is important for me to go ahead and affirm that I think same sex couples should be able to get married.”

The ABC appearance followed several days of amped-up pressure on Obama to change his stance on same-sex marriage after Vice President Biden and members of Obama’s Cabinet expressed their support for legalized marriage between same-sex couples.

I continue to think that the energy spent getting him here could have been more profitably deployed elsewhere–the practical impact of this is zero–but it’s still a big deal, and it feels good.

    I’m glad he finally revealed what he’s always thought all along. However, I really hope that going public doesn’t turn off the squishy low-information voters who apparently decide elections these days.
