Watch: Rachel Maddow Interviews Obama Adviser Tobias Wolff About DOMA from a Very Loud Bar


Rachel Maddow spoke about the DOMA announcement with '08 Obama campaign legal adviser Tobias Wolff. Incidentally, Maddow is broadcasting from a bar in Lawrence, Kansas. It's not a gay bar, although she does get some gay background kissing action at one point.

Said Wolff: "I think it's going to have an impact not just on the DOMA litigation but on civil rights litigation all around the country."

  1. I agree with Tobias Wolff -- The advances in LGBT rights that have been enacted into law under our current president are astounding! Of course the biggest victory is the repeal of DADT, and the subsequent right that gay men and women can now serve their country without hiding their identity. He has passed other laws for LGBT rights, but to have a president, dem or repub, actually take a judicial stand against discrimination against us it breath taking.
