Just in case any of today’s cocktail party attendees were wondering if the President would evolve before the festivities, he hasn’t.
The President was asked if marriage is a civil right. He didn’t answer that question — and thinks the states should decide. Although, he did say what happened in New York was a “good thing.”
Later in the press conference, the President would not answer the question of whether he now supports marriage. The President said that he was not going to make news on that today. That’s what the President said to me last October when he first said he was evolving. That was actually news then — and his failure to evolve is still news.
