Democrats in Congress, frightened by what voters are likely to do in November, have been given their marching orders by the Obama administration.
A question on many Americans' minds now is whether and when the Supreme Court of the United States will overturn a federal court's ruling that the California law defining marriage as a union between one man and one woman is unconstitutional. Opponents of same-sex marriage are hoping the answer is "yes" and "soon."
Rumors of Congressional Democrats privately expressing disapproval of the Obama administration's actions and policies have been given more credence by such things as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's public criticism of White House spokesman Robert Gibbs. But when two long-time Democratic pollsters, Patrick Caddell and Douglas Schoen, called President Obama "cynical" and "racially divisive," that was a dramatic statement. It was like saying that the emperor has no clothes.
