Two years ago today: VP Joe Biden on marriage equality

Two years ago today, Vice-President Joe Biden gave this statement on Meet The Press regarding marriage equality:

“The good news is that as more and more Americans become to understand what this is all about is a simple proposition. 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 is what — what all marriages, at their root, are about. Whether they’re marriages of lesbians or gay men or heterosexuals.

“I am vice president of the United States of America. The president sets the policy. I am absolutely comfortable with the fact that men marrying men, women marrying women, and heterosexual men and women marrying another are entitled to the same exact rights, all the civil rights, all the civil liberties.

“And quite frankly, I don’t see much of a distinction beyond that.”
