Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has announced that Democrats may take a . This just a day after President Obama came out in support of gay marriage, albeit on a personal level—he’s still playing the “states’ rights” card.
Reid tells Politico that they’re glad to tackle it but not sure quite when:
“If it gets on the floor, we’ll be happy to take a look at it. It’s an important piece of legislation…. I just don’t know where it is now and we have a few other things to do. Presumably … the Republicans won’t let us get it on the floor anyway, but we’ll take a look at it. It’s not a Democratic problem, it’s a Republican problem.”
More conservative Democrats, like Montana’s Sen. Max Baucus weren’t so happy to champion the cause, saying that Obama and other leadership should take the reins on this issue.
Well, then, excuse us while we call the President and let him know we’d like DOMA repealed, stat. Oh, and a large coke and side of cheese fries, too.
