President Obama is still grappling with the notion of same-sex marriage, and it looks like his second in command is taking the issue a step further by declaring the “inevitability” of gay marriage in the future. —KA
Los Angeles Times:
Vice President Joe Biden, increasingly visible as a key presidential adviser on domestic issues, predicted on Friday that the country was moving toward a growing acceptance of gay marriage.
Speaking on ABC’s “Good Morning America,” Biden compared the nation’s changing views on gay marriage to the same changes he has seen on the military’s acceptance of gays and lesbians serving openly.
“I think the country is evolving, and I think there is an inevitability for a national consensus on gay marriage,” Biden said. Same-sex marriages can be legally performed in five states and Washington, D.C.
