Professor Stone On Obama's Opposition to Gay Marriage

Professor Geoffrey Stone of the University of Chicago warms Obama that he will be on the wrong side of history unless he drops his opposition to marriage equality:

Someday, perhaps twenty-five years from now, the former President's grandchildren may pose the question: "Grandpa, some people in school say that when you were president you opposed same-sex marriage. That's not true, is it, Grandpa?" I am rather confident that, unless he makes this fundamental struggle for civil rights and equal justice his own, Grandpa Barack will be able to offer no answer of which he will not be ashamed.
