    Joe Biden called gay marriage 'inevitable' and soon it'll be law

    A decade ago, then-Vice President Joe Biden shocked the political world and preempted his boss by suddenly declaring his support for gay marriage on national television. But not everyone was surprised. A small group had attended a private fundraiser with Biden weeks earlier in Los Angeles, where he disclosed not only his approval but his firm conclusion about a positive future for same-sex marriage. He predicted, “Things are changing so rapidly, it's going to become a political liability in the near term for someone to say, I oppose gay marriage.'" "Mark my words. And my job — our job — is to keep this momentum rolling to the inevitable.” The day that Biden envisioned may have arrived. He plans on Tuesday to sign legislation, passed by bipartisan majorities in Congress, to protect gay unions — even if the Supreme Court should revisit its ruling supporting a nationwide right of same-sex couples to marry.

    Samajwadi Party won Mainpuri Lok Sabha by-poll due to public sympathy: OP Rajbhar

    SBSP chief Om Prakash Rajbhar on Saturday said the Samajwadi Party won the Mainpuri Lok Sabha seat because of public sympathy over the death of Mulayam Singh Yadav. He also took a swipe at the Akhilesh Yadav-led SP, saying joining hands with Shivpal Singh Yadav's PSPL would not change its electoral fortunes. "Mulayam Singh Yadav had contested the last Lok Sabha election in Mainpuri as part of the SP-BSP alliance and won by a margin of about 95,000 votes. Dimple Yadav won the seat by a margin of 2.5 lakh votes, so it is clear that a sympathy wave has contributed to her huge victory," Rajbhar told news persons on the sidelines of an event here. "The coming together with PSPL will not benefit the Samajwadi Party in any way (in the 2024 Lok Sabha polls). Akhilesh Yadav and Shivpal Singh Yadav had contested the assembly polls earlier this year together. Both the leaders have already been together," he further said.
