That's a very good point. Obama had meetings, read poll numbers, strategized with his people, probably waited to see what would happen with Lugar, and then made a calculated decision to go with it. So, even if you are ecstatic that President Obama "came out' for gay marriage yesterday you need to remember one thing: If Obama thought it would guarantee him a second term - he would toss his next pro gay marriage speech right into the shredder. You can take that to the bank.

President Obama is a thorough-going man of the left obsessed with power and thus in re-election, so his decision Wednesday to declare for same sex marriage is hardly a surprise. The only surprise is that his timing was so nakedly political and reflexive. The president was pushed into declaring his support by his Vice President and his Secretary of Education, and no serious person disputes this.

“Leading from behind” –the famous White House description of the president’s Libya policy retailed by the White House to the New Yorker’s Ryan Lizza--now has found its expression in domestic politics.

Of course...
