Although I believe, from a purely political calculation, that Obama's decision to express his personal support for marriage equality will cost him very few votes in 2012, I really don't care.
It was the right thing to do.
It lurches humanity forward again.
Humanity will stumble, zig-zag and reel like a drunk after last call, but it will continue to head forward. And equality is forward.
I hope it does not cost Obama the election, but even if it does, we survived 8 years of W. We'll survive 4 of the Mittster.
And forward progress will still be made.
