Perhaps Secretary Clinton would be better off simply not talking about DOMA. She’s evolved on the issue (as did President Obama on marriage equality) and thankfully the Democratic Party is firmly supportive of LGBT rights. The same is not true of the Republican Party.

Or instead (regardless of what the GOP says why let then define anything?!) of prevaricating she could have pointed out how many years and how much public perception has changed. Even the science on what might make a person gay has come along. She could have spoken to how views can and do change for the better. Opportunity lost.

I’m glad Bernie called Hillary out on this. I thought I was remembering the passage of DOMA wrong. It was obvious that President Clinton passed it to score political points to win the 1996 election.

Hillary could have said that had her husband not won the 1996 election the Supreme Court would have become controlled by conservatives a lot sooner and might have made the gay marriage bans legal and constitutional thus making it a lot harder to undo.

But she was dishonest to suggest that a constitutional amendment to ban gay marriage was on the horizon. That might have been true in 2004, with so many states banning gay marriage, but not in 1996.

There was no way to dodge the issue. Rachel Maddow asked her specifically about DOMA and the crime prevention laws which have led to so much incarcerations passed by her husband.

He (President Clinton) did it for political points. It was wrong of him. Props to Sanders for having voted against it in the first place. I think Bill realizes now he was wrong to do what he did but it was done out of Bill’s legendary triangulating not fear for the con amendment.
