I really appreciate that the argument presented in this speech was that the right to marry (or to be protected from employment discrimination, etc.) is not a lesser issue (than the economy, for instance) nor is it an issue to be considered only in a politically viable way (i.e., it's only brought up when a candidate doesn't fear losing an election because of it). Rather, she presents this as an immediate civil and human rights issue that requires an immediate and equitable solution.
