If you didn’t think Hillary Clinton could get any more awesome, she has now said that she will be rallying for same sex marriage in America.

Hillary Clinton Endorses Same Sex Marriage
HollywoodLife.com previously reported that Hillary, 65, is planning to run for President of the United States in 2016, and as the potential future leader of the country, it is amazing that she is rallying for same sex marriage.
“I support marriage for lesbian and gay couples,” Hillary says in the video. “I support it personally and as a matter of policy and law embedded in a broader effort to advance equality and opportunity for LGBT Americans and for all Americans.”
She adds that “like so many others, my personal views have been shaped over time by people I have known and loved.”
She said that her role as Secretary of State made her open her eyes to injustice, and that the United States should be a leader in defending gay marriage world wide.
Gay people and lesbians “are our colleagues, our teachers, our soldiers, our friends, our loved ones,” she says. “And they are full and equal citizens and deserve the rights of citizenship — that includes marriage.”
Earlier this month, Hillary’s husband Bill Clinton also endorsed gay marriage in a Washington Post op-ed urging the Supreme Court to strike down the Defense of Marriage Act, which he had signed into law in 1996.
