President Obama just sealed a 49-state Victory for 2012

As they say, it was as close to a "no-brainer" as there is in today's politics:

President Barack Hussein Obama: I have to tell you that over the course of several years as I have talked to friends and family and neighbors when I think about members of my own staff who are in incredibly committed monogamous relationships, same-sex relationships, who are raising kids together, when I think about those soldiers or airmen or marines or sailors who are out there fighting on my behalf and yet feel constrained, even now that Don't Ask Don't Tell is gone, because they are not able to commit themselves in a marriage, at a certain point I've just concluded that for me personally it is important for me to go ahead and affirm that I think same sex couples should be able to get married.

Here's the "no-brainer" part:

  • A plurality of Americans support this sensible policy, especially among younger demographics that will only grow over time.
  • Democrats have traditionally endorsed increasing the rights of all groups of Americans (except maybe Corporations).
  • It could will throw wingnuts into a monumental hissy fit from which they may never recover. ;-)

Now, if he does win 49-states, Democrats shouldn't think this is an endorsement of other idiotic policies they still support like Afghanistan and Austerity. (And that's just the "a"'s.)

What's the 50th state that won't go? Alabama.
