Bil's Quest For Straight Talk From Bayh On Gay Marriage
Bil Browning of Bilerico has been on a several-week quest dating back to Sen. Evan Bayh's luncheon with bloggers last month to nail down Bayh on precisely what his position on same-sex marriages is. While he doesn't get any straight answers from Bayh, he does find some answers, none of which he's too happy about. The bottom line is clear that Sen. Bayh wants to appeal to the so-called "culture" voters, which means he can't appear too supportive of equality for gays and lesbians. The problem with that strategy is that he must first win the Democratic nomination, and by the looks of his low standing in the public opinion polls in every early presidential primary state, his strategy isn't working.
