In an appearance on Meet the Press Sunday, Vice President Joe Biden said he is “absolutely comfortable with the fact that men marrying men, women marrying women.” But, he added, “The President sets the policy.”
Biden’s comments mean he has gone further than President Obama in expressing support for marriage equality.
“I think Will and Grace probably did more to educate the American public than almost anything anybody’s ever done so far,” Biden said Sunday.
Is this Biden going off the policy reservation once again?
