Probably when he's in his second term, when he's more "flexible." Tongue

Obama should endorse gay marriage in his DNC speech.

One more reason I love Joe Biden and no matter his age I'll be hoping he runs for President in 2016.

The spin is that Biden still has exactly Obama's position that those who are married should have equal rights, but they don't necessarily support allowing those who aren't married to marry. Obama's moderate heroism is pretty lame.

Obama's endorsement of this issue is really going to look cheap considering his path: in support, opposed, "evolving" for 2-3 years, support.

Pretty unprincipled...

I should say this is a positive development, I am happy that Mr. Biden isn't afraid of the gayz. I'm guessing this is a strategy to court voters that think that Obama is not far left enough.

Joe Biden does strike me as a man very confident and comfortable with his own sexuality - and thus tolerant of others.

Education Secretary Arne Duncan jumps onboard:

Asked during an appearance on MSNBC whether he believes same-sex couples should be allowed to marry in the United States, Duncan gave a straight answer: “Yes I do.”


The Secretary of Education?  Supporting the gays?!  Won't someone PLEASE think of the children?!?!

Biden is one of the least strategic people in the history of American politics when it comes to stating his position on something.

Indeed, Biden should be happy he is the Vice President of Obama and not of Cameron or he would be in danger of being bounced from the ticket over this.

The idea of parodying the preceding Atlasian's postings is laughable, of course, but not for reasons one might expect.

Yeah, but at that point the Republicans will be out in force so he needs to boost his own base, so he'll come out before then.
