    Was it Mr. Dooley who said "Th' Supreme Court follows the illiction results"?

    Roberts and Kennedy know that their job is to keep the plutocrats in power. Anything that diminishes their ability to do that will be discarded as a necessary sacrifice. And there is an easy "strict constructionist" way to go about this: simply say that the Constitution and practice over 225 years have left the issue of marriage to the states, and the federal government is bound to respect the actions of the states which have legalized marriage.

    That's all they'll do on this suit. The question of whether states must recognize same-sex marriages contracted in other states under the "full faith and credit" clause will be left to another day.
