Step back and think about it for a minute.  The President and head of the Democratic Party just announced his support for gay marriage.  The Republican nominee basically said, "Yes, the states can give benefits to domestic partnerships, but I can't support marriage."  No fire-breathing response.  No rhetoric that Obama is ruining America's values.  He basically said that people differ on this issue and left it at that.  That is the remarkable thing about today.
