All in the family – Hillary Rodhan Clinton supports Defense of Marriage Act – Brief Article
She broke ranks with her husband by opposing his “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy, but when it comes to gay marriage, first lady Hillary Rodhan Clinton is standing by her man. Clinton, who is seeking the Democratic nomination for the U.S. Senate from New York State, said January 10 that she opposes same-sex marriage. She also said she would have voted for the Defense of Marriage Act, a bill passed by Congress in 1996 that prevents federal recognition of same-sex marriage. “Marriage has got historic, religious, and moral content that goes back to the beginning of time, and I think a marriage is as a marriage has always been, between a man and a woman,” Clinton said.
