The week started as a brush fire, which Vice President Biden lit when he said last Sunday that he was “absolutely comfortable” with same-sex marriage. It became a five-alarmer on Monday morning when Education Secretary Arne Duncan said, “Yes, I do” support it, too. And it was a rip-roaring inferno by the time of the afternoon press briefing. With a hastily arranged interview with ABC News’s Robin Roberts, President Obama doused the fire by saying, “[I]t is important for me to go ahead and affirm that I think same-sex couples should be able to get married.” Plenty of other things happened during the week, but they pale in comparison to the history made on Wednesday.
If you really want to know what else happened sharpen your pixels and take the p-Op quiz.
