Very Gradual Change We Can Believe In

Peter Staley can wait till after November for Obama's final evolution on marriage equality:

We all hope that those wishy-washy independents will start voting our way on gay marriage, but we have very little evidence that they've done so in the past (quite the opposite, actually). Are we willing to bet that enough of them will vote our way this time — enough to outweigh all the votes from the poked Christianist hornet's nest?

I've been an AIDS activist most of my adult life, and the most important thing any of us can do right now for people living with HIV/AIDS in this country is to get Obama re-elected. The single most important piece of legislation for their lives in the years to come is Obamacare, which is under vicious assault from a misinformation campaign led by FOX News and the Republican Party.

Weigh that against hearing Obama say he loves us even more than he already does. I can wait for his final kiss.
