    Goodnight everyone. Just posting this again: President Obama will be officiating the wedding of his new White House Social Secretary, Jeremy Bernard. Remember, Jeremy is the first gay WH SS.

    It’s been a little over a month since President Obama finally declared he believes (part of) the Defense of Marriage Act is unconstitutional. But today he’s announcing he’s going a step further: he’s agreed to officiate the wedding of his newly installed social secretary Jeremy Bernard.
    Bernard was named to the post in February and becomes the first man (and first out gay person) to hold the position. But Bernard and his partner Rufus Gifford (pictured R-L) — who helped raised serious cash for Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign — are unmarried. Obama has offered his services to fix that.
    As you might’ve heard, Washington D.C. has legalized same-sex marriage and, despite House Republicans’ best efforts, it remains the law of the land. Which is where Bernard and Gifford plan to wed in spring 2012.
    /snip
    …he clearly supports the right of gays to get married where it’s legal. (Evidently, Obama’s views have truly evolved.) That he’s agreed to be the one to marry two gay men, meanwhile, will be the most visible signal yet of his pendulum swing. And I mean visible literally: There are going to be photos of this published all over the world.

    ‘…got dragged away from my computer for most of the day…’

    Oh no, Chipsticks! Don’t tell me you have a life apart from us? My feelings are hurt. I’m inconsolable. How CAN you? First you tampered with my Greek philosopher vision, now you’re saying you’re not 150% committed to this relationship? 😥 😥 This has been a rough day for me, so I’m going to bed to sleep it off. 😉 Tomorrow starts with the funeral of a friend’s grandmother, and ends with a musical presentation where I have to show up to support my offspring. See you all sometime tomorrow (God willing). 😆

    Have a restful night, Chipsticks and family!

    This video is one of my favorites. Shucks, it may well be my favorite since I choke up each time I view it. Thank you Chips.
    Goodnight

      Gloria, I so love this. My eyes well up almost instantly, and when the the elderly gentleman from the D-Day ceremony appears, happens everytime, the tears spill over. Incredibly poignant and beautiful.

    Thanks Chipsticks. I am sitting here crying like a baby. The music moved me so much. What an appropriate piece. The music feels large with humbleness of respect along with each photo. What a way to end the evening. And Chipsticks, you do not have to apologize to us. You deserve some time away to rest and relax. We appreciate you so very much for this haven of peace and rest. Thank you all so much. I am very tender in my spirit tonight, sorry for the tears, but I just get so hurt when such great music accompany the photos that are just on point. This President deserves all of this. I must be so tired and upset because I had just finished watching C-SPAN with the House. But have a great night everyone, and we will pray that we will be granted another day tomorrow. Have a wonderful evening.

    Chipsticks,

    you deserve a life just as anyone else. I have often wondered how you manage to be so current and meaningful, as well as funny and personable, while taking care of all of the things that everyone does. Rest, re-group, go out with friends and family.

    Until we meet again, live strong and happily.

    That was a beautiful video. Thanks for posting it :-).

    Thank you so much for the video. It brought me to tears of joy and sadness. What a wonderful President we have. It also made me upset that he has to endure such hatred. Thank God for his intellect, his strength, resolve, compassion, his loving family and for us. At times it hurts to see him carrying the weight of the world on his shoulders.

    Chipsticks,
    I am late to this goodnight video. Well, you just had to do it, didn’t you? You made me tear up again. How dare you make me feel hopeful and calm. I have had enough. More later.
