This was total stagecraft; Biden was merely the opening act. After the hostile reception to Obama's mealy-mouthed "evolution" remarks, he knew he couldn't stay on the "in my own way, on my own terms" path any longer. He also knew that the NC amendment would probably pass. So Biden, then he, strategically "sandwiched" their affirmations around the vote, winning the love of LBGTs and progressives in time to get re-elected -- and absolving themselves from actually DOING anything more.
