Mr. Wahls gave an impressive delivery of a wonderful speech. Unfortunately the fools in the Iowa House voted to amend the state's constitution to single out Iowans and take rights away from them: http://caffeinatedthoughts.com/2011/02/iowa-marriage-amendment-passes-iowa-house-62-37/
"Before Iowans can vote on the language in this amendment it first needs to pass the Iowa Senate. Senate Majority Leader Mike Gronstal (D-Council Bluffs) has already promised to block a vote, and an attempted vote to bypass Senate rules to allow the Senate version to come to the floor to be debated and voted on failed. The amendment would have to be passed again in the next General Assembly before it could be placed on the ballot."
Hopefully the Iowa Senate is a more deliberative body that will vote against the amendment.
