I fail to understand why anyone who considers themselves liberal or progressive would not vote in favor of it. Whether you LIKE gay marriage being legal or not is a personal issue. Equal Rights for all is a legal issue. When you vote against it, or speak out against it, or make fun of it, or dismiss it as being unimportant, then you are not advocating equal rights. Many of us seem to be advocating 'separate but equal'. This is bullshit! Separate is NOT EQUAL! Civil union is NOT equal!
So please think about it. DO you believe all of us, as American citizens, Black, White, Hispanic, Asian, Old, Young, Christian, Jew, Buddist, Bahai, Catholic, Muslim, Atheist, Agnostic, Straight, Gay, Democrats, Republicans(ugh)or any other group should have equal rights? Or do we still want to pick which groups should get them? To pick & choose which groups is decidedly NOT progressive or liberal.
Please think about it.

A lot of folks here are saying They would NEVER vote for so-and-so if they are the nominee. I know how you feel.
My candidate dropped out. I'm not way thrilled with what we have left, but one of them will be the Dem nominee.

You don't have to vote FOR the nominee... You could vote AGAINST John McCain.

I know... WTF's the difference? Well, there IS one.

If you go to polls to vote FOR someone you really hate, you slither in there thinking 'DAMN! I don't wanna do this.' You will be sick at heart & maybe you will be sick to your stomach as well. At any rate you will feel crappy about it.

If you go to the polls to vote AGAINST someone you totally despise, you stomp in there thinking 'I will NOT let this miserable bastard, John McCain, become the next President no matter WHAT I have to do to stop it.' You will feel a whole lot better in that case. You will also be helping our country, and this country, at this time, needs all the help we can give.

So please, give a thought to voting AGAINST John McCain.
Thank you!

I have to realize that EVERYTHING that is wrong in our country today happened ON MY WATCH! I am delighted to see so many young folks stepping up to the plate! Whether you're 18 or an 'almost middle-aged' 30 I hope y'all do a better job of holding our nation to the great standards it was meant to have than we did! Far be it from me to complain about your choices or methods.
MORE POWER TO YA!
