Of course I would also claim that many liberal Catholics, particularly Ted Kennedy, were probably waiting to switch sides once the force of law was on their side.

Something that has never really occurred to me, but just clicks when I think of all of the hold-out Democratic politicians "coming out" for marriage equality in that orchestrated manner in 2013.

I think you probably nailed that one - at least as an explanation for why Ted Kennedy used to be 'pro-life.'

The same can be said for someone like Bush Sr, who's late in career change from pro-choice to pro-life would most likely have been more out appeasing the party base than any actual change in private beliefs.

And, interweaving this with SSM again, he notably has attended a lesbian wedding ceremony while his politically active sons remain opposed to it.
