Capital New York quotes Jon Cooper, a gay Obama bundler, on the president's decision to renounce his opposition to gay marriage:

"I hadn't seen any diminution in support for Obama among LGBT donors or progressive donors for that over the past few weeks, despite the previous disappointment not to move forward with the executive order banning LGBT discrimination by federal contractors," Cooper said. "That being said, I think that this statement by the president expressing his personal support for same-sex marriage is going to make my life immeasurably easier raising money from LGBT donors and progressives in general."

The Washington Free Beacon has more on the political motivations behind Obama's gay marriage reversal.
