A leading GOP pollster recommends that party leaders come out in favor of basic civil protections for homosexual couples.
It was my strong belief that the campaign against A1 should have focused more on the civil unions ban.
It's hard to look at a landslide result and argue that a better campaign would have changed the outcome, but clearly A1 opponents lost the framing war early -- a lot of people were voting to support marriage, period, and never read past the comma.
But support for civil rights/civil unions is strong and growing. My guess is that my as-yet-unborn grandchildren will live in a country where such rights are a given, and they'll look back and wonder what all the fuss was about.
