President Obama on Marriage: Still Evolving

LC NY Bureau Chief Doug alerted me to this New York Times article on President Obama's views on marriage equality.  He reminds of William Hurt's character in The Big Chill who declared "I was evolving.  I'm still evolving."  This week, the President will headline a $1250 a plate dinner called "Gala With the Gay Community" and on June 29, he will host a gay pride celebration at the White House.  This gives him two golden opportunities to announce that he's evolved to what I have always suspected to be his personal position:  full marriage equality.  You can read the article here.
