The Gay Marriage Long Game

This year's presidential election is very likely to be the last where both major candidates oppose gay marriage.

Steve Kornacki: "Sure, it would be a major development if [Obama] and his party were to officially endorse gay marriage this year. But look ahead to 2016, when the Democratic nomination will be open. It's striking how many of the prospective candidates -- Andrew Cuomo, Martin O'Malley, Deval Patrick, Sherrod Brown, Dan Malloy, Elizabeth Warren -- are on-board with marriage equality. Their position is rapidly becoming the position that all aspiring national Democrats will be expected to take, and it's virtually inconceivable that the '16 platform won't reflect this."
