FLOTUS Michelle Obama thumb 300x408 2441 Michelle Obama: Supreme Court Appointees Will Affect Whether We Can Love Whomever We ChooseAce reporter Chris Geidner at Metro Weekly reports:

At multiple events in New York City on Monday, March 19, First Lady Michelle Obama — in campaigning for her husband’s re-election — made reference to the effect that Supreme Court appointees will have on “whether we can … love whomever we choose.”

Although she did not explicitly mention marriage equality, the possibility of a case raising that issue reaching the Supreme Court has been a regular topic of discussion — particularly in light of the challenge to California’s marriage amendment, Proposition 8, that is currently being considered by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit.
