Lady Bush on gay marriage 

AP interview excerpts here:

"[LAURA BUSH]: It's an issue that people want to talk about and not want the Massachusetts Supreme Court, or the mayor of San Francisco to make their choice for them. I know that's what the president thinks - it's an issue that needs to be debated. People want to be able to look at it and talk about it. I think people ought to have that opportunity to debate it, to think about it, to see what the American people really want to do about the issue."

John and Mary choose to get married. How does the mayor of San Francisco make their choice for them? Jules and Jim get married. How does that affect John and Mary's choice?

Actually, I'd be all for having a debate on this—since I think the government should be out of the sanctity business, I think the government should be out of the marriage business, and only in the civil unions business—if I didn't know that all Bush wants to do is pander to his base, and the kind of fake, staged debate he'd want to stage would only hurt the country.
