I guess some people think it matters and reflects a lot on the president’s character whether or not he endorsed gay marriage of his own free will or was forced into it prematurely by his vice president. For me, it was something that was going to happen, one way or the other, and it was merely a matter of timing. When the history books are written, people aren’t going to pay attention to who was invited to give a prayer at the 2009 inauguration or how long it took to repeal Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell or how many years it took to endorse gay marriage. The history books will simply say that gay rights advanced in leaps and bounds during the presidency of Barack Obama, and he didn’t stand in the way.
