  • While everybody’s going on about the states that explicitly banned gay marriage, why has no one run with the story that a 60% majority of Americans support either civil unions or outright marriage? source: CNN’s exit poll stats.
  • Moderate PA Republican Arlen Specter, “the Republican expected to chair the Senate Judiciary Committee next year, bluntly warned newly re-elected President Bush on Wednesday against putting forth Supreme Court nominees who would seek to overturn abortion rights or are otherwise too conservative to win confirmation.” [via the Turnip]
