California legislature passes gay marriage bill for second time:

Story here. Voting for gay marriage in 2005 had no discernible effect on the careers of those voting for it. California's remains the only state legislature to vote for this.

The governor will veto the bill, as he did in 2005, citing a popular referendum vote in 2000 against gay marriage. However, unless the state constitution is amended in the interim, it seems just a matter of time before California gets a governor and legislature in agreement for same-sex marriage.
