Nothing to Lose and Everything to Gain

The California Horse Racing Commissioner noted yesterday that because the gay marriage ballot initiative will not be retroactive if passed, marriages performed in the next five months will be protected. Consequently, he has some legal advice:

"You have everything to gain and nothing to lose. There may be this five month window where any marriages, no matter what happens with the consitutional amendment, are valid."

Right. But, will it even pass?

According to a poll released today, no, the constitutional amendment will not pass. The reuslts conflict with an earlier LA Times poll, but they are encouraging. http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/c/a/2008/05/28/MNOU10U8MB.DTL&tsp=1

As a friend said the other day, "That's one helluva DTR talk, courtesy of the California Supreme Court."

I like the reference to "UC Berkeley's law school." Nobody knows what to call the place.
