Marriage Vote in NY Not Certain

Well, we knew better this time than to actually believe it would happen when Governor Paterson once again claimed there's be a vote on marriage equality in New York, this time for Tuesday. Once again, it may not happen. I was actually wondering how the Dede Scozzafava debacle would play out and I did think in fact it would scare Republicans in the Senate on marriage for gays. The Republican Party in New York has known for some time that state Republicans will be dinosaurs soon, as all the surrounding states have marriage equality and the Northeast Republican is heading for extinction and needs to make changes. However, those with sites on national office, certainly saw what happened to Scozzafava and took notice. If the local party is, perhaps, ready for the change, the national party is light years away.
