The U.S. Senate rulez

The ban on gay marriage failed to pass the U.S. Senate yesterday.  Yeah!  Renewing my faith in our government.   It was pretty close though; 48 for to 50 against.  12 needed to move to a real vote, 19 needed to pass the actual vote. 
Sen. John McCain (Ariz.), one of the six Republicans who voted to block the amendment, said he did not believe it would be approved "this year, nor next year, nor anytime soon until a substantial majority of Americans are persuaded that such a consequential action is as vitally important and necessary as the proponents feel it is today."
