Obama supports Gay Marriage
While many are wondering whether Obama has given Romney a “gift” by alienating some of the Democratic base (namely, conservative religious people of color), this opinion article at the Huffington Post is pretty convincing to me that the whole thing was a grand chessmaster move by the Obama campaign.

It’s not the nail in the coffin the right makes it out to be, particularly among conservative religious people of color who will probably just agree to disagree on this one topic.
Senator Harry Reid has also come out in support of [civil] gay marriage. I wonder whether more and more Mormons will do the same.
