OK, so Obama hit the gays as the last of four items on his list of rights that have come thanks to the hard work of young activists. But hey, gay rights continue to get airtime from the president, who just last week endorsed same-sex marriage.

Obama touched on gay rights during a commencement speech on Monday at Barnard College, including them in a list of items that “made this union more perfect.” Not bad, Mr. President.

That other guy? He pandered to conservative Christian college students and reiterated his not-gay definition of marriage.
