Going even farther than President Obama, today Congressman James Clyburn (D-SC) said that he believes legal recognition of Marriage Equality should not be left to state laws, but instead ought to be decided at the national level.
Clyburn told NBC's Chuck Todd, "If we consider this to be a civil right - and I do - I don't think civil rights ought to be left up to a state-by-state approach. I think we should have a national policy on this."
"Sometimes it takes the federal government to step into the breach to resolve many of these issues," Clyburn continued.
