Ellen Brought To Her Feet, Saying Thanks To The President
Ellen gave President Barack Obama a standing ovation on her show today for his powerful words of support for marriage equality. The statement is the first definitive support from the White House and the first open support of gay marriage from ANY president in history. While he maintains that individual states should maintain control over the issue, his statement is a powerful push in the right direction.
In other words, a VERY big deal. Especially in an election year. Unprecedented. Wow.
