President Obama is in NY today to visit the troops and the gays, but not at the same time. Following his visit to Fort Drum, Mr. Obama will head to NYC for a fundraiser with gay and lesbian supporters.
The appearance is not without irony as Mr. Obama and his "evolving" position on same sex marriage will be placed in the middle of the debate and possible vote in Albany on the matter.
Will the Governor weigh in ? While in front of this core and dollar-laden constituency it will be difficult for Mr. Obama to avoid addressing marriage. It will be interesting to see what happens.
