Democrats obviously on history's right side; here's Marc Solomon telling you why

by Jeremy Hooper

Some smart truth from Freedom to Marry's Marc Solomon:

The unanimous vote to include marriage for same-sex couples in this year's national Democratic Party platform draft was historic and groundbreaking. It is a recognition of the love and commitment that so many gay and lesbian couples have for one another, and the importance of ending their exclusion from marriage, which honors and protects that commitment. It is also confirmation of the trends and momentum we are seeing throughout America: that support is growing rapidly and that backing the freedom to marry is not only the right thing to do, but the politically advantageous thing to do.
