Did Hillary Clinton Really Forget Most American Gays Cannot Marry?

Some folks are saying Sec. of State Hillary Clinton stepped in it when, commenting on her daughter’s upcoming fundraising nuptials, she told NBC’s Andrea Mitchell about how great America was because it let anyone get married, even people of different faiths (like her daughter Chelsea and fiance Marc Mezvinsky), without realizing you homos actually cannot get married.

And while Hillary’s comments were, technically, overstating things, and it would’ve been nice for Hillary to give the ‘mos a shout out in Pakistan, where the interview took place, did anyone else get the feeling she was sort of making a proclamation about what our future holds, rather than its current state? Or maybe, for once, I’m just being an optimist.
