Hilary's bold political move

Hilary Clinton has now taken a bold, courageous step: She's come out for gay marriage. Undoubtedly she will be pilloried in the press, hounded at public appearances, her political career ruined.

That she would come out with such a controversial position at a time when gays are being widely persecuted and denied basic human rights is simply astounding.

This is undoubtedly one of the boldest and most selfless political moves in the history of ...

... Um, hold on. Let me think about this a second. Scrap that.

Turns out coming out for gay rights and gay marriage is really popular with all the right people. It gets you into all the right kind of society and you get all kinds of praise from the media and stuff. It doesn't require any political courage at all. In fact, it looks pretty much like political pandering at this point in time.
