Hillary and Chuck on Gay Marriage

Liz Benjamin has next-day reactions from Hillary Clinton and Chuck Schumer on the Court of Appeals gay marriage ruling.

Clinton supports “full equality for people in committed relationships.”

Schumer supports “civil unions” but applauded the court’s decision to leave the ultimate decision on the issue to the legislature and governor.

Neither statement includes the word “marriage.”
