Just caught this on HuffPo. Click the link to see his video statement.
Once again, Al Gore gets it exactly right.
On January 17, just before Martin Luther King, Jr. Day and the country’s celebration of, and recommitment to, the work of winning civil rights, the Nobel Laureate and former Vice President posted a video on Current TV entitled “Gay men and women should have the same rights.”
In his personal statement, Gore looks directly at the camera and unequivocally comes out in favor of ending the exclusion of same-sex couples and their families from marriage. And yes, he says the word marriage.
Once again I’m reminded that the guy I wish was running, isn’t.
