    You're right, and Cheney is most certainly not more progressive than Obama with respect to gay marriage.

    Agreed. Civil unions are one of the only modern examples of people being "separate but equal" I can think of. Unions are just not good enough, sorry. Everyone deserves the same right to get married, regardless of their race, ethnicity, religion or sexual orientation. Can you imagine if we allowed only "civil unions" for interracial couples and wouldn't let them marry? I understand it's difficult for Obama to promote gay marriage rights without alienating the general (ignorant) public, but someone has got to step up sooner or later and stop this (widespread and socially accepted) discrimination.



    I also think it's funny that Cheney is speaking up so much now that he's out of office. Where the hell was he when he was supposed to be Vice President? Not to mention many Republicans believe in a smaller role of the central government and letting the states decide (McCain did also), so this isn't even very progressive.
