(Newser) – Hillary Clinton publicly got behind gay marriage today, reports CNN, proclaiming that "gay rights are human rights" in a Human Rights Campaign video. "America is at its best when we champion the freedom and dignity of every human being. That's who we are," she says. "It's in our DNA." The announcement, while hardly surprising, puts her in line with other Democrats eying a run for the Oval Office in 2016, notes the AP.
