Not sure who isn’t understanding it, the reporter or Hillary:
Hillary Clinton, the 2016 presidential hopeful, has urged the Supreme Court to rule to allow same-sex couples nationwide to marry.
The former secretary of state, who this week launched her second run for the White House, said she believes the right for gay people to marry should be a Constitutional one, not one decided by individual states.
Hillary is a politician. What she thinks should be a constitutional right (in the absence of actually launching the process to change the constitution) doesn’t actually matter. Because the whole point of such rights is that they are not politically granted, but legally so, so it’s up to the judges, not the politicians, what is and is not such a right.
