PROPOSITIONS ARE AN AWFUL IDEA, BUT IF YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE THEM, FOLLOW THEM:

Schwarzenegger vetoes gay marriage bill (MSNBC, 9/29/05)

Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger followed through Thursday on his promise to veto a bill to legalize same-sex marriage, leaving the issue up to voters or judges who will likely face the volatile issue in the next year. [...]

Schwarzenegger said the bill by Democratic Assemblyman Mark Leno contradicted Proposition 22, which was approved by voters in 2000 and said only a marriage between a man and woman is valid.

The governor said the state constitution bars the Legislature from enacting a law allowing gay marriage without another vote by the public and that Leno's bill wouldn't provide for that vote.


Let's see the Democratic nominee for Governor run on gay marriage.

I'm sure that she will run both ways, just like John Kerry did.

Do Americans really care about homosexual marriage, or is this purely special-interests agenda-driven?

Americans care more than the special interests, viscerally, not politically.

Phil Angelides is not going to beat Arnold. Perhaps only Feinstein could do it, but she won't run. And after her performance at the Roberts hearing, she's officially a girly-woman.
