Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and front-runner for the Democratic nominee for President in 2016, has now formally followed the path of many other leading Democrats, including President Obama, in supporting marriage for LGBT Americans. In the video below, Mrs. Clinton explains her reasons.
For America to continue leading in the world, there is work we must do here at home. That means investing in our people, our economy, our national security. It also means working everyday as citizens, as communities, as a country. To live up to our highest ideals and continue our long march to a more perfect Union.
LGBT Americans are our colleagues, our Teachers, our Soldiers, our friends, our loved ones. And they are full and equal citizens and deserve the rights of citizenship. That includes marriage.
That is why I support for lesbian and gay couples.
