Wow.

Eloquent, clear…Vice President Joe Biden comes out in favor of absolute marriage equality.

“I am absolutely comfortable with the fact that men marrying men, women marrying women and heterosexual men marrying women are entitled to the same exact rights…

…Who do you love? Who do you love and will you be loyal to the person you love? And that’s what people are finding out what all marriages at their root are about. Whether they are marriages of lesbians or gay men or heterosexuals.”

The social culture is changing, too-slowly yet very-quickly, thanks in great part—as VP Biden points out—to silly shows like Will & Grace.

“People fear that which is different.”

Biden is the highest ranking official to endorse marriage equality.

    More evidence that Joe plans to run in 2016.

    I kept thinking, where have I heard someone say "Who do you love?" Then I realized, he's riffing on George Thoroughgood!

    He probably had that mean slide guitar riff in his head all morning.

    Joe Biden is probably one of the most incompetent, bumbling, non mindful "leaders" I have seen in my life. He reminds me of a used car salesman on a good day.

    When you think of great statesman of the past, their intellect, integrity, letters, and then you look at this clown its comical and also gives insight to the deterioration of America as a global leader.

    What he said was fine, I totally agree, that a government has no right whatsoever to tell who can marry who. The fact that we even debate something like this shows how unaware our country is.

    We should be talking about far more important and existential matters. Not sure why this is "wow" More like "duh"
