Hillary Clinton Endorses Same-Sex Marriage

Former Secretary of State and potential 2016 presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton announced her support for same-sex marriage in a video posted today by the Human Rights Campaign, a gay rights advocacy group. In the video she says, "L.G.B.T. 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 citzenship. That includes marriage."

Hillary Clinton was a strong supporter of gay rights during her tenure at the State Department. Under her watch, the US government made it official policy to promote gay rights around the world.
