Michelle Obama Does Not Support Gay Marriage

Michelle Obama Denies She's a Public Supporter of Gay Marriage

Michelle Obama does not publicly support gay marriage, in case you were confused. After former New Jersey governor and now openly gay Democrat Jim McGreevey said he wished Barack would "listen to Michelle more often" on gay marriage, the first lady's office issued a clarification that "Mrs. Obama has never made any public statements about same-sex marriage."

Considering Michelle's popularity and the rise in pressure to legalize gay marriage across the country following New York's decision to pass gay marriage, maybe Michelle would be the perfect person to test out the political fallout President Obama might face for backing gay marriage. We already know that liberal supporters of the president are frustrated that he won't lend his support, so maybe it would actually help him win some votes.

Last week, Michelle Obama offered decent dating advice to her daughters and all young people: find someone who makes you better. Since she's already talking love from time to time, do you think she'd be wise to lend her support to marriage equality, too?
