Thanks and No Thanks

Thank you, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, for calling for equal benefits to be given to same-sex spouses of State employees.  It may require repeal of the Defense of Marriage Act (in which case, go on, do that), but she's on the right track.

No thank you, Nevada Governor Jim Gibbons, who vetoed legislation providing for domestic partnerships in that state.  The veto could be overridden, especially if the very large, very powerful gaming interests in the state have their way.  So we'll see.
