What could have been:

I support gay marriage. I wish now though in hindsight that the mayor of
San Francisco would have waited until January to take his public action
in support of gay marriage. That  stance gave George Bush the fuel to
support a constitutional ban on gay marriage, a ban that he well knew
would not at time fly. That lead to the gay marriage ban initiatives
appearing on numerous  state ballots. That energized the Christian
Taliban, many of whom sat out the last election. The Right Wing seized
on a wonderful opportunity to rally collective ignorance.
