    Civil unions are Not equality–not in Britain, and not in Hawai’i!

    Here’s me keeping my fingers crossed!

    Never trust a Republican – I know she is against civil unions and will “veto” it, I just know it.

    You needed 3 more votes in the House for an override – so now she will veto it anyway!!!!!

    The civil unions bill is now sitting on Governor Linda Lindle’s desk, awaiting her to sign, veto or let become law without her signature.

  6. Given that Gov. Lingle’s sexuality is the worst kept secret in Hawaii, it would be an absolute betrayal for her to veto this. She’s not running for reelection and leaves office in Dec, so there’s no serious political risk for her. The Hawaii Legislature has been talking marriage for nearly 20 years with no action. Given that both Houses passed this by strong majorities, the bigots will already have tried everything and failed. Come on, Linda, do the right thing.

    Great stuff, Clay. Thanks for the priceless insight.
