President Clinton on Gay Marriage

Former President Bill Clinton

Former President Bill Clinton

Whether you love him or hate him, you got to admire his willingness to speak out and take a stand on a controversial issue – even going so far to admit he was wrong.  Many people remember that former President Clinton was the one who brought the “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell” military policy into effect.  And he has gone on record to say that he is against gay marriage.

Well in an interview with CNN Reporter Anderson Cooper (who is also gay), President Clinton admitted he was wrong in his opinion of gay marriage.  In the interview, he admitted that he was “hung up” on the actual word of marriage, considering he is 60 years of age and grew up in a time where marriage was only considered between a man and woman.  He went onto explain that he has always been in favor of gay adoption and  if  “….people want to make commitments that last a lifetime, they ought to be able to do it…..”  Former President Clinton cites his many gay friends that have helped him reached this conclusion on gay marriage.

Well I am for one glad that he came out (sort to speak) and said he supported gay marriage.  Now if only President Obama would do the same, that I think would mean to world to LGBT folks who care about the gay marriage question.
