I'm with Arnold on Gay Marriage

From the AP: Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger said Friday that he would fight an initiative to amend the California Constitution to ban gay marriage if it qualifies for the November ballot.

That’s easy for me since, unlike the current three presidential candidates, I favor gay marriage. But the following may be the more interesting part of the AP article: “I will always be there to fight against that,” Schwarzenegger said, prompting loud cheers and a standing ovation from about 200 people at the annual convention of the Log Cabin Republicans, the nation’s largest gay Republican group.

The Austrian-born governor immediately cracked that he wished activists would instead focus on passing an amendment to allow naturalized citizens to run for president.

Now there’s an interesting question.
