A commenter on Pam’s site points out that saying “it oughta happen” is still a totally non-committal statement, but it is a step in the right direction.

Pam says that Dodd’s position sets a new standard for Presidential candidates (and I’d be willing to add that Senator Clinton’s call to repeal “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” also sets a standard).
