i'm not sure happy adoption is going to have the same fundraising success.  he should have taken happy marriage while it was still available.

Good point...

I'm for freedom and equality for all. I can't believe freedom and equality for all needs to be a topic of debate and voted on.

Do women get to vote yet?

How about at least 2/5??  Is that fair for the GOP?

Or, can the GOp actually give them a full vote?

This is the whole reason we have crappy things like quotas and affirmative action...

canosvp...  after some thought I can see your point tho...  in 2004 same sex marriage was a key issue to helping bush win...  So obama saying he is for same sex marriage based on 21st century history seems like political suicide...

So perhaps he is putting principles before politics...  or perhaps he is simply trying to further distinguish himself from the GW reign of terror...

you never know... but I am sure the Spin masters (from both sides) will try to spin it in their favor some how..

for the sake of the world we need less population so more happy marriages are a good  thing  ....unless of course that old joke about anal sex is true

...and we don't need more lawyers!
