Cheney makes libertarian/real-conservative noises...
... about the civil-law matter of gay marriages, reverting to his pre-Bush position: kick it back to the states. (Incidentally his daughter is a lesbian and his wife wrote a bad Western-themed historical novel with a lesbian story line 25 years ago.) What I wonder is 'Is this a show of character/principle, of breaking with Bush as the media are painting it, or is it simply part of a Republican 'big-tent' strategy to snag whatever borderline libertarians/real conservatives might possibly take Bush seriously?' (Going against the 'vote for me or the homos will get you' tone of the campaign as reciprocal link The Gutless Pacifist put it.)

Some common sense from Huw Williamson about the matter
