I don’t know when, but probably soon, and definitely before Election Day.
President Obama continues to play cute with his position on gay marriage, remaining opposed, we think, while his press secretary can say only that the president’s position is “evolving.”
Vice President Biden’s position is also evolving.
I’ve never heard of a politician saying their view on the matter is “evolving,” but in this White House, on this issue, we’ve got two of them.
Evolving is a “have your cake and eat it too” strategy that suggests to gays Obama might support same-sex marriage while telling voters who oppose it that he doesn’t. Credibility apparently doesn’t come into play here.
