San Diego mayor accepts Gay Marriage

Oof! Try watching this without getting a little choked up:

It is so rare to see a politician go directly against what he is supposed to do. It is remarkable that Republican (!) Jerry Sanders had the balls to do this when the leading Democratic candidates for President cannot do the same. As much as Obama might appeal to me, this one issue will make it pretty much impossible for me to vote for him. Sanders evokes the Civil Rights Era phrase Separate but Equal. There is really no other way to view the worthless, stalling attempts at pacification such as Civil Unions and Domestic Partnerships. What is the difference between saying “Oh, but your Civil Union is just as good as our heterosexual marriage…” and saying “Oh, but your Blacks Only school is just as good as our Whites Only school…”?
