I really hope he does this. Government-sanctioned unions among gay couples, contrary to all the hype and all the court rulings to the contrary, are a proven political loser. Bans have succeeded in every state in which they have come up for votes. Even in flamingly liberal states like Maryland and New York, enacting them at the legislative level has proven to be quite difficult.
So yes, I sincerely hope that 0bama comes out of the closet and embraces this loser of an issue. It helped sink John Kerry in 2004 (I remember Bill Clinton explicitly warning Kerry to not back such unions) and it will help sink 0bama in 2012.

Believe me when I tell you that the advocacy of homosexuals to serve openly in the military is the wedge they are going to use to drive this.
It will be the basis for all that follows.
Many on the left would see the homosexualization of the military as a beneficial twofer.
