Annise Parker Tweets Her Joy on Obama's Gay-Marriage Announcement

Mayor Annise Parker has tweeted her joy -- if not astonishment -- at President Obama's announcement today that he endorses same-sex marriage.

"Wow! I was wrong. Call from White House. The President has stepped up and stated his support for recognizing mine!-a"

Parker got a call from an Obama aide relaying the decision to her. Parker, of course, has been public in her support for gay marriage, joining a group of mayors calling for marriage equality.
