Sen. Clinton won't oppose gay marriage in New York
by The Washington Blade
NEW YORK -- Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.) told a group of gay elected officials Oct. 25 that she would not oppose a gay marriage law in New York if a future governor and Legislature chose to enact one, The New York Times reported.
Clinton has opposed same-sex marriage, which has earned her criticism from some gay advocacy groups. Clinton has stated that she favors civil unions for gay couples and that each state should have the right to decide the issue for itself.
Clinton met for more than an hour with the three-dozen officials from New York two hours after the New Jersey Supreme Court ruled that gay couples were entitled to the same legal rights as heterosexual couples, the newspaper reported. The timing was coincidental.
