    Interesting, but brief op-ed by Bill Clinton on gay marriage. Posted by WPost.

    Glad he took the initiative to write the op-ed. Agree.

    Back in the 80's the republicans wrapped themselves in the "family values" montra and Reagan pushed it.... I think some of that spilled over into the 90's and democrats for years tried to show they "were family oriented" as well...
    very glad that "family" has expanded and marriage equality has taken over as the "push".. we'll see what happens!

    George Wallace used to be a segregationist till the later years of his life, then he did a major 180.

    I suspect the same with Clinton and gays as well.

    We have two very powerful allies in President Obama and former President Clinton -- they have now both spoken out in favor of equal rights for gay Americans. Their influence may help tip the scales in our favor with the Supreme Court's impending decision on marriage equality.

    Bill is a sweetheart. He was duped into DOMA by the conservaposse of the 90's, and is trying to right his wrong.

    I stand beside him.
