This is my point, exactly. Should you have been against gay marriage laws 10 years ago, because "it's just not realistic to pass in the current political environment"?
That is, incidentally, what political hacks and phoneys like GAF darling Hillary did, only throwing their weight behind it years later, when it was politically safe to do so.
So you agree then that Bernie is just as guilty of that then?
Or you believe that 'state rights should decide gay marriage' Sanders supported gay marriage?
