Gay marriage in California

Marriage between two people of the same sex is now officially legal in the State of California. I didn't think this was going to happen until after Arnold left office, but the California Supreme Court surprised me. The next step is defeating an amendment to the California constitution that will appear on the ballot in November. I am cautiously optimistic. I think the effect of seeing people who are incredibly happy will change some minds. And I'm not even sure that that many minds need to be changed. Some polls that I have seen indicate that a majority of Californians support gay marriage. But it is by no means a sure thing.
