Vice-President Joe Biden recently appeared on the long-running political program, “Meet The Press” to discuss President Obama’s re-election campaign. One of the main topics of discussion of course was gay marriage – a topic that has seemed to consume a lot of this year’s political race. We’ve known for a while that the Obama administration has struggled with this issue but we’ve also watched them take huge steps to overcome the stigma such as the abolishment of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell. But where does Vice-President Joe Biden stand on the issue? He states in his interview:
I am absolutely comfortable with the fact that men marrying men, women marrying women, and heterosexual men and women marrying another are entitled to the same exact rights, all the civil rights, all the civil liberties. And quite frankly, I don’t see much of a distinction beyond that.
But when it comes to Obama himself and the issue at hand, mom’s the word. Biden doesn’t seem to open up to much about where the President currently stands on the issue. He states that the President sets the policy and that’s the fact. When it comes to the question of whether or not the Obama administration will stand behind the right of equal marriage, Joe says he doesn’t know the answer. Check out Joe Biden’s interview with “Meet The Press” below. Do you think Obama will stand behind gay marriage if re-elected into a second term at the White House?
