As Hillary Clinton demonstrated for Rachel Maddow on MSNBC, her campaign has a new spin on the reason then-President Bill Clinton signed the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA): He had to be against gay marriage in order to save it, or something:
On Maddow, HRC defends Bill Clinton's signing of DOMA as "a defensive action" to prevent amendment to Constitution against gay marriage.
