Obamas gay marriage gamble
Placeholder Image
As a political issue, same-sex marriage is like playing 3-D chess: Opponents of the idea need to move quickly because the game board is tilting slowly but steadily in favor of the other side. It is a sign of how far the debate has moved, for example, that conservatives are divided over whether President Barack Obama's support for the idea hurts him or helps him. Conservative columnist/blogger Michelle Malkin even saw it as part of his re-election strategy, calling it "a campaign finance decision," on Fox News.
