Gore and Gay Marriage (JM)

Ben Smith from Politico shares a video from Al Gore in which he forcefully supports gay marriage. I think I speak for almost every Democrat I know when I say: We're really glad about the whole saving the Earth thing, but we really could use you as our President.

The fact that the entire Democratic field is too terrified to get out in front of such an obvious issue is a discredit to our party. The fact is, Republicans have no problems taking literally insane positions and sticking to them, yet when it's a matter of dignity and equality for an almost completely unrepresented portion of our population our political leaders remain silent.
