– Clinton’s announcement is already generating local headlines.

– Up With Chris Hayes on MSNBC did a segment on Amendment 1.

– Melissa Harris-Perry also talked about it:

– Our own Adam Bink will be on Sirius/OutQ 109 with Signorile at 2:30 PM EST Monday.

    I wonder if it bothers NOM and their supporters even a little bit that polls show that when voters understand what Amendment 1 actually does, a strong majority say they would vote against it? It sure seems like they're counting on it to pass–which it will–because people are ignorant, narrow-minded and mean, if not downright stupid. But I truly believe we're at the tipping point and this is going to be one of their last victories. And they will milk it for all it's worth, because they know they're losing in the long run.

    Unreated, but it seems that Joe Biden supports Marriage Equality :)

    To be bothered, NOM would have to be something other than professional bigots.

    The only thing that could ever bother NOM is losing. Winning by lying to voters? That's a feature, not a bug.
