“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 are entitled to the same exact rights, all the civil rights, all the civil liberties,” boldly stated Joe Biden recently.
Biden became the highest-ranking official in the Obama administration to signal support for same-sex marriage. Biden never explicitly said that he backed marriage equality, but he implied it.
