Can you imagine whom the Human Rights Campaign is going to endorse for president? Go on. Have a wild guess. My favorite quote:
Hochberg said he doesn't believe Clinton's opposition to same-sex marriage will hurt her among the majority of gay voters. He said most gays understand that marriage is a long-range goal and that other, first-step goals must come first, such as passage of a gay and transgender civil rights bill and hate crimes bill.
"She understands our issues and is strongly committed to our cause," Hochberg said.
This has been the mantra of HRC for almost twenty years now. In case Hochberg hadn't noticed, we already have civil marriage rights in one state, all-but-marriage in several others, and a legislative majority in the most populous state for the reform. The "long-range" goal has already happened. The "first step goals" are still undone.
