McCain: Same-sex marriage ban is un-Republican

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Republican Sen. John McCain of Arizona broke forcefully with President Bush and the Senate GOP leadership Tuesday evening over the issue of same-sex marriage, taking to the Senate floor to call a constitutional amendment that would effectively ban the practice unnecessary -- and un-Republican. Source: CNN Its great to see the constitution again stands un-amended. Kerry and Edwards did not vote, but they have missed a lot of votes during the presidential campaign. The Republicans still could not get enough votes to push this forward. Mike DeWine voted Yes, George Voinovich voted Yes as well. (A "yes" vote was a vote to advance the measure and a "no" vote was a vote to stop it.) Its nice to see that one Republican out there (McCain) thought this one through.
