Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) defended President Obama against the notion that he flip-flopped by coming out for gay marriage.

“I don’t think it’s a flip flop,” she said on Fox News Sunday. “There’s no political calculus in this, because it’s not smart. You know, if he’s going to do it from a political point of view it doesn’t make any sense.”

Feinstein said she’s seen the happiness and economic security that same sex marriage has led to, and described that as a reason people are coming around on marriage equality.
