(Note-this started as a comment in Jpmassers diary-I decided to expand it)

The Junior Jewfish was a bit perplexed this afternoon when mom started randomly jumping up and down, screaming and hollering in the middle of making her a sandwich. "What are you so happy about?" she asked.

I sat her down and told her "President Obama just said that a man should be able to marry a man, and a woman should be able to marry a woman if they love each other, just like everyone else"

She gave me her most withering 5-year old stare and said

"Well, duh!"

Two simple words-but as far as I'm concerned they say it all.

1. My kindergartener is smarter than 2 out of 3 North Carolinians

2. Our hope for the future is not found in the pundits who greet the news of Obama's marriage equality endorsement by calling it "groundbreaking" or "game-changing"-but in a generation of kids who will grow up knowing that the only reasonable response to such an endorsement is...

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
