Quote of the Day

“When I climbed the Capitol steps in January, I promised myself that I would return to the Senate with an open mind and greater respect for others.

“Same-sex couples should have the right to civil marriage. Our time on this earth is limited, I know that better than most.  Life comes down to who you love and who loves you back– government has no place in the middle.”

Sen. Mark Kirk (R-Illinois) becoming the second GOP senator to support marriage equality.

At least Rob Portman now has some company at his lonely table for one.

But it shouldn’t take having a gay child (Portman has a gay son) or a near-death experience (Kirk had a stroke) to see the light on this one.
