This case offers Congress the wimpiest, squishiest gay marriage test vote imaginable. Just little old D.C. recognizing marriages performed elsewhere. The people's representatives in the city have already spoken. All they're looking for is approval of a decision already made by a democratically elected body. Democrats have a crushing majority in Congress. But I'll eat my fanciful Derby Day hat if congressional Democrats come through and do right by this faithful constituency. So where will that leave gay politics?
One hopes the Dems do the right thing.
