THANK YOU for mentioning this. Everyone has seemed to gloss over it. He's giving his *personal* support, but not his *political* support. I'll give him a bit of credit for the former, as it is definitely a (mostly symbolic) step in the right direction, but it's largely toothless if he offers no political support for it. It may just be something that comes to bite him in the ass in November.

But really...the "states' rights" argument, coming from a modern, urban Democrat?! Not to mention one who is himself the product of a union that was deemed illegal in several states during the time of his birth. Yes, it's a big day. But the cognitive dissonance is a bit too much for me to handle.
