YouTube Obama, Cheney, Bush Gay Marriage Ad: Watch the Video

President Barack Obama, former Vice President Dick Cheney, former Secretary of State Colin Powell and former First Lady Laura Bush are joining forces to support gay marriage in the new Respect for Marriage ad.

"None of us would want to be told that we can't marry the person we love," starts a male narrator. "That's why a growing majority of Americans believe it's time to allow marriage for gay and lesbian couples," the narrator ads. 

"When couples are committed they ought to have, I think, the same sort of rights that everyone has," then says Mrs. Bush.

"[...] allowing them to live together with the protection of law it seems to me it's the way we should be moving in this country," continues former Secretary Powell. "Freedom means freedom for everyone," says Dick Cheney.

"Our journey is not complete until our gay brothers and sisters are treated like everyone else under the law," concludes President Obama.
