Maybe he's positioning for another run at the White House in 2016?

You don't get the Republican nomination by being a moderate Reoublican. Given that the primary process runs first through Conservative NH (Republican side) and then takes a trip to the South, about the last thing you would do is endorse same sex marriage if you want to get more than 12 votes.

I'm guessing it's just the opposite. He has realized that he has no chance of higher elected office and has decided to do the right thing, since he is "sane", by any definition except the that of the rabid right.
