And I come back to you now – at the turn of the tide

Ros-Lehtinen is first GOP member of Congress to back marriage equality

Asked by the Washington Blade whether she’s a supporter of same-sex marriage in addition to backing DOMA repeal, Ros-Lehtinen initially expressed confusion about why the question was being asked, saying, “I don’t know why you’re asking that. It’s such a weird way.” But she later affirmed she’s a supporter of marriage equality.

This is much larger news than the President’s craven announcement concerning gay marriage. Gays will never be mainstreamed until there is a bipartisan consensus around their formal legal equality, even if there is no consensus on what that the exact contours of that equality are.
