    in light of the fact that there is a push to put Ohio's same sex marriage ban up for a referendum this November.  More and more in the GOP are waking up and realizing this is a losing issue.  In my mind it bodes well for the repeal efforts.

    I think you're largely correct Sylvia, this is more a cynical ploy by Sen. Portman to dump a losing issue for him than it is a change of heart.  And the timing is no mistake, after the presidential election and any chance that he had of being Romney's running mate has passed.  There's no way he would have been on the ticket if he announced publicly that his son had come out to him.

    For at least another hundred years we must pretend to ourselves and to everyone that fair is foul and foul is fair; for foul is useful and fair is not. Avarice and usury and precaution must be our gods for a little longer still. --John Maynard Keynes
