Not Encouraging
Obama in NH:
He also repeated his stance on gay marriage - that civil unions are fine, but marriage is a religious bond.
"I believe that every American has basic rights that have to be respected," said Obama, who noted that his parents perhaps broke the law when they entered into a biracial marriage in the 1960s.

I wonder how Obama feels about the Brown vs. the Board of Education Supreme Court ruling on separate but equal. I am now a broken record, but if separate but equal isn't good enough for education, it's not good enough for nuptials. Civil Unions are not an equivalent of marriage.

Watching the 2008 presidential hopefuls spin on a civil right is disheartening.

Kucinich is a bit clearer, but we're still hidden on his site near the bottom of the issues page:
I believe that equality of opportunity should be afforded to all Americans regardless of race, color, creed or sexual orientation. For that reason I support the right of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered persons to have the full protections and rights afforded under civil law including the right to marry the person of their choice.
