    I'm pretty sure it would have dragged on for decades, and couples legally married in states that allowed it would still have been denied federal recognition and benefits (because the "Defense of Marriage Act" was also struck down by a court decision). And that's assuming that the haters wouldn't have found a way to block states from granting equal rights, much as some states are passing laws that block counties and cities within themselves from doing so.

    I hope your mail poll comes back overwhelmingly in favor and this lights a fire under the politician's tails.
