Warren Pushes Obama on Same-Sex Marriage

Massachusetts U.S. Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren (D) called on President Obama "to finish evolving and support same-sex marriage," the Washington Blade reports.

Said Warren: "I want to see the president evolve because I believe that is right; marriage equality is morally right."

She also said she wanted the issue included in the Democratic national platform.

Greg Sargent: "It's worth noting that even though Warren is running for Senate in Massachusetts, this is not necessarily a politically easy thing for Warren to do. Scott Brown opposes marriage equality, and Warren is under heavy attack right now over cultural issues. Brown and national Republicans are attacking her regularly over her support for Obama's contraception coverage mandate, which they are falsely portraying as anti-Catholic."
