In light of Gingrich’s South Carolina win and the inevitability of an extended primary, coming out for marriage equality would allow Obama to redirect the focus of the Republican primaries. As with all primaries, we’ve seen these candidates move to the far right of the political spectrum in an attempt secure the nomination. One of Romney’s central problems is that he is perceived to be too moderate. By announcing his support of marriage equality, Obama would drive the Republican field into a frenzy as they launched full scale attacks on Obama’s decision in order to beef up their support among evangelicals. It would also cause thrice married Newt Gingrich to talk about the sanctity of marriage more, which is as entertaining as it is cringe-worthy.
