    But the Dems will have to have a presidential electorate on a midterm year AND pick off a lot of gerrymandered seats.

    I'm not sure that's any more likely than the Supreme Court striking it down in that period.

    •  But maybe some Republicans would vote for repeal (0+ / 0-)

      Some are from states that have gay marriage and might be inclined to go along. If I thought we could get our own caucus to all vote for it I would be optimistic that we could get enough Republicans. But I know some Dems from conservative districts might balk.

      •  It'd take a lot of Rs (0+ / 0-)

        and as you say the Dem caucus would have to be solid, which isn't a given on this topic.

        In 2014?  Who knows.  It's possible we wouldn't have to take back the house if the winds of change move on far enough.
