Bill Clinton (finally) Supports Marriage Equality

A little late--former President Bill Clinton Now Supports Same-Sex Marriage rights. As President, Clinton supported and signed the "Defense of Marriage Act" (DOMA) which now denies federal recognition of marriage rights and benefits for same-sex couples who are now able to marry in some states.

Hopefully President Obama will not wait until he's out of office to say he supports marriage equality for gays and lesbians.

Speaking of flip-flops, Obama is still making excuses for NOT repealing the other legacy of Bill Clinton, the military's anti-gay Don't Ask, Don't Tell policy. In an interview with Anderson Cooper on CNN, Obama talks about "changing" DADT, not REPEALING it.
