Hillary Clinton comes out in support of same-sex marriage ahead of potential White House run
Hillary Rodham Clinton was a U.S. senator for eight years and a secretary of state for four. She also ran for president in 2008, when she supported civil unions for same-sex couples.
Today (March 18), she's finally publicly expressing her support for same-sex marriage, less than a year after President Barack Obama did the same. In a video for the LGBT advocacy group Human Rights Campaign, Clinton said: "I support it personally and as a matter of policy and law."
Clinton doesn't say whether her decision to make the statement has anything to do with her potential entry into the 2016 presidential race, but that's the media buzz. It's not as if she hasn't had plenty of opportunities to help the cause before now.
