25. States' rights isn't going to overturn the constitutional amendments in 40 states and counting.
North Carolina will have a constitutional amendment against equal marriage on the ballot in 2012. We'll be awash in "family" advertising funded by the Catholic Church, and that advertising will be directed against Obama as well.

Obama is handing most of the country a weapon to be used against him. It's a very shortsighted strategy on his part.
