This afternoon the Washington, DC City Council passed a same-sex marriage bill! The mayor of DC has pledged to sign it. Because it was earlier ruled that this was a civil rights issue, the bill will not go to the ballot box for a Maine/California style overturn. And while it is still possible that Congress could intervene, it is quite unlikely given that Democrats control both houses. In 30 days it looks like same-sex marriage will be the law in DC!
I won't pop the champagne bottle yet, but I'll at least put it on ice!
