Senate Majority leader Harry Reid says the Senate may work to repeal the Defense of Marriage Act. Even if it has no realistic chance of getting through a divided Congress, it could energize the Democratic base.

“If it gets on the floor, we’ll be happy to take a look at it,” Reid said Thursday. “It’s an important piece of legislation.”

Reid, a Mormon who believes that marriage should be defined as between a man and a woman, said in the wake of the president’s remarks that the government should not prohibit same-sex couples from marrying.

On Thursday, he also said he expects the Democratic Party’s platform to include a stance supporting gay marriage.

“The president is in favor of it, I’m sure it will be” in the platform, he said.
