D-IA says past biases are DOA

by Jeremy Hooper

TOM-harkinHis state came on board. Now Sen. Tom Harkin (D-IA) is himself on history's good side:

U.S. senator Tom Harkin, the powerful Democrat from Iowa who voted for the Defense of Marriage Act in 1996, announced on Friday that his views had changed and that he would not support any potential constitutional amendment to ban same-sex marriage in his state.
Iowa Senator Supports Marriage Equality [Advocate]

Democratic senators taking principled stands. A novel concept that would've been nice to see that back when both the Bush and the heated anti-marriage was really thick, and our friends seemed few and Feingold. However, if our donkey-based support must be a proverbial battle of late versus never, then we'll certainly take the former. Thanks, Tom!
