Hillary Clinton Switches Twitter Avatar to Rainbow for SCOTUS Same-Sex Marriage Arguments

On Tuesday, as the Supreme Court heard oral arguments on whether the Constitution of the United States mandates that states accept legally sponsored same-sex marriage, 2016 Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton changed her avatar on Twitter from her normal logo to a rainbow logo.

This is an odd change for a woman whose evolution on same-sex marriage has magically mirrored the polls within her own party. In 2004, Hillary Clinton called traditional marriage “the fundamental bedrock principle that exists between a man and a woman,” and even added, “Marriage is not just a bond but a sacred bond between a man and a woman.”

At the time, as the Washington Examiner points out, 60 percent of Americans opposed same-sex marriage. By 2007, Hillary had moved in support of civil unions. Pew showed that 54 percent of Americans opposed same-sex marriage. In 2011, Hillary said that New York’s decision to embrace same-sex marriage had given “visibility and credibility” to the gay marriage movement; at the time, Pew showed that a plurality, 46 percent of Americans, now supported same-sex marriage. In 2013, Hillary finally said she backed same-sex marriage. Fifty percent of Americans supported same-sex marriage at the time. Just last summer, Hillary told NPR she believed same-sex marriage was an issue to be left to the states.

If Clinton’s avatar were truly to reflect her position on same-sex marriage, the arrow in the center ought to swerve like a game of Chutes & Ladders.
