It's been 13 months since President Obama chose to start "evolving" his stance on gay marriage back to where it was in 1996. In what world is evolution supposed to be such a slow, gradual process? He might finally be wrapping things up, though, as Press Secretary Jay Carney today would not rule "in or out" the possibility that he'll announce his support for gay marriage during next week's State of the Union.

You all hate me right now for delivering such thin evidence, I understand, so let me throw in two more pieces of thinner evidence: Several states — Maryland, New Jersey, Washington — are making the push for legalization as their legislative sessions begin, and today a group of Big City mayors formed to advocate for the issue.

And if Obama never stops evolving, the movement can just continue winning without him.
