Washington DC Council to vote on marriage today

The City Council of Washington, DC is expected to hold its second vote on same sex marriage at 11:00 this morning.  The measure was approved 11-2 on its first vote; the second vote is expected to pass just as handily.  After this second vote, the bill is sent to Congress for a 30-day review period.  It is within the rights of Congress by passing a joint House-Senate resolution and then getting the approval of the President.    This seems unlikely and serves as a reminder that now matter how frustrated some of us may be with the slow pace of LGBT legislation in Washington,  life is different under Democratic rule than it was under the Bush administration.
