That’s right, that’s what Gross is saying. And Hillary’s indignity aside, of course it’s the truth. I think what I’m actually astonished at is that this is an apparently earnest question by Gross. I mean, the ground shifted under everyone’s feet for sure, but before that you figure the Democrat base was giving its candidates a fair amount of leeway to make this absurd pander to moderates, swing voters, and other squares about their commitment to a defense of traditional marriage. They are just not traditionalists on the whole, and the GLBT has a great influence within the party specifically.
It’s clearer in hindsight now. People exceeding a modest understanding of politics know that elected Democrats were lying about their objection to gay marriage. The Democrat base gave them a pass on the lie, if in fact they were not in on the truth.
Gross can not be oblivious to this knowledge. So I don’t know why she asks the question and has an expectation that there’s a genuine, clarifying answer to be gotten.
PS: I’m for marriage equality, in case I have to say it again
