    At the very least, you have to give credit to the President's announcement of support of full marriage equality when it comes to changing minds in the African American community.  Not that those are the only people whose minds have been changed.

    Black support for marriage equality has basically flipped from 2-1 against to strong majority support over the course of one year.  Yes attitudes are quickly evolving, but such an immediate change would not have happened without Obama's announcement.

    He may not have been on the leading front of this issue, but he has certainly been helpful in changing hearts and minds.  The Obama presidency will go down in history as the turning point on this issue in the minds of the American people.
