In addition to a lot more.
This an historic moment, one I never thought I’d see. But recall President Obama on the campaign trail in 2008 saying and I quote that he would be out ‘fierce advocate’. And I’ll be damned if he hasn’t lived up to it.
Even in the video he makes the case that if they strike down Prop 8 and DOMA – then none of the other bans and amendments should no longer be able to withstand that heightened scrutiny.
It’s remarkable. The Supreme Court despite what they say does not live in a news vacuum. And the Obama Administration has been on our side with this through DOJ, Solicitor General, etc. It’s going to be an interesting spring and I suspect that the gay pride celebrations this year just might be the barn burners if in fact the court rules as I believe they might.
