32. "he wants equal treatment for any relationship recognized under state law" What does that mean?
Edited on Thu Jun-26-08 10:20 PM by Skip Intro
Doesn't sound like it really backs up the "fight for gay rights" headline to me.

"Barack Obama has said it should be up to individual states to decide whether to allow gay marriage. Michelle Obama says he wants equal treatment for any relationship recognized under state law."

What exactly does that mean? He'll fight for gay rights in states that approve gay marriage? What about states that don't? What exactly is being said about equal rights here?
