Still think Hillary Clinton isn't running in 2016?

By Richard K. Barry

On Monday,  former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton endorsed gay marriage in a video, saying that she supports it "personally, and as a matter of policy and law.”

According to Politico:
Clinton’s endorsement was expected after her husband, Bill, and daughter, Chelsea, endorsed same-sex marriage while Hillary Clinton was serving in President Barack Obama’s Cabinet. When she was campaigning for president in 2008, Clinton had opposed gay marriage and backed civil unions instead. Since then, support for gay marriage has become a cornerstone of the Democratic Party.

Given that the position is quickly becoming Democratic orthodoxy, is there any other reason to make such a public declaration other than as a necessary step in her march to the White House in 2016?

I doubt it.

Here's the nearly six minute statement.
