"I had hesitated on gay marriage, in part, because I thought civil unions would be sufficient," the president said. "I was sensitive to the fact that -- for a lot of people -- that the word marriage is something that provokes very powerful traditions and religious beliefs." But, Obama said, his thinking shifted as he witnessed committed same-sex marriages and thought about U.S. service personnel who were "not able to commit themselves in a marriage."
Congratulations to President Obama for "opening his eyes" on this which puts him directly opposite Mitt Romney on this stance. Mitt believes it is a union only for a man and woman. What will the polls decide?
