Bush has, to no one’s great surprise, announced his support for the anti-gay-marriage amendment now being debated in the Senate. http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/nationworld/chi-0606060114jun06,1,7688365.story?coll=chi-newsnationworld-hed
Is W doing this for any reason other than shoring up his social-conservative support base in the runup to November?
If he is doing it for that reason, will it work? How will this affect the Congressional elections?
Any chance the amendment will be approved by Congress?
Any chance it will be ratified by 3/4 of the states?
