I think the "states rights" cover is more a statement about reality--and a cover for the lack of any political power to effect a more serious change right now.

Realistically, Obama DOES NOT HAVE THE POWER to change the federal law on this. Only Congress can do that--and unless he has massive majorities (such as in the Civil Rights Act), or control of the Supreme court (Interracial Marriage), or is willing to fight a physical war against half of the country (Civil War)--then there's not much more he can do about it at the present time than give his symbolic support.

If we all want this passed--then we need to work to retake congress and give the Dems a 62+ seat majority in the senate. It's as simple/hard as that...
