"The fight for equality and justice on behalf of the LGBT community is just part of a broader fight on behalf of all Americans. The scope of this country has always been to further broaden the meaning of citizenship to include more and more people; to give better and better expression to our highest aspirations; to make the country more fair and more just and more equal. That's what wars were fought about. That's what the civil rights movement was about. That's what the women's movement was all about. That's what the workers' movement was all about - this constant progression to include more and more people in the possibility of the American Dream. And so this is just one more step in that journey that we've taken as a nation."

-- President Obama at an LGBT fundraiser Wednesday night in L.A.
