    the President came out in support of marriage equality last May, it spurred the Democrats at the state level to start working on it. It always helps to have the support of the head of your party.

    Plus, the way his thinking "evolved" was very similar to what a lot of neighbors and friends have experienced. They too, have come to realize that no, the fact that two men who are in love get married doesn't really hurt their marriages in any way. It just allows others to seek happiness. So a wave has slowly been growing across the country that is now breaking.

    Doesn't mean the war is over, just that a number of battles have been easily won.
