She said she supports it "personally and as a matter of policy and law"

Two months after stepping down as Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton has publicly announced her support of same-sex marriage. She is seen by many as a leading contender for the 2016 presidential election. CBS has the story:

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, considered a top Democratic contender for the 2016 presidential race, formally announced her support for same-sex marriage in a statement today, a move that was widely anticipated after she stepped down from the Obama administration.
In her announcement, which she made directly in a video with the Human Rights Campaign, Clinton argues that gays and lesbians are "full and equal citizens and deserve the rights of citizenship."
"That includes marriage," she said in the video. "That's why I support marriage for lesbian and gay couples. I support it personally and as a matter of policy and law."
