Hillary Clinton Announces Support for Gay Marriage: "It Benefits Every American"

And here we thought Hillary Clinton had already lent her official support to gay marriage? You wouldn't be wrong for thinking so either, but today she made it official official with this amazing video for the Human Rights Campaign in which she says she supports gay marriage both personally and professionally.

"A little over a year ago in Geneva, I told the nations of the world that gay rights are human rights and human rights are gay rights," Hillary says in the video, "and that the United States would be a leader in defending those rights."

She continued, "LGBT Americans are our colleagues, our teachers, our soldiers, our friends, our loved ones. And they are full and equal citizens and deserve the rights of citizenship. And that includes marriage."

Best picture ever?! Hillary and Meryl Streep take a selfiecheck it out!

"Throughout our history as our nation has become more dedicated to the protection of liberty and justice for all...it has also become stronger," she states at one point. "It benefits every American when we continue on that path.

Some assume the former secretary of state is laying the groundwork for a 2016 presidential run (#Hillary2016). Perhaps, but more so she discusses husband Bill Clinton and their joy at watching daughter Chelsea Clinton get married.

And the love is very much reciprocal.

"Today my mom announced her support for gay marriage! #ProudDaughterAgain #MarriageEquality," Chelsea tweeted.

Yay! To celebrate, it's time for a Hillary Clinton dance party, y'all!
