    I'm right with you. This:

    In addition there is the "there may not be a Constitutional right to same-sex marriage but once that right has been granted you need a really compelling reason for taking that right away away" argument.
    ...is what I was calling the "'California only' outcome." So-called because some folks (who aren't thinking very clearly) have declared that such a ruling would only matter for California, the only state in which a vested gay-marriage right has been taken away.

    To the contrary, it would matter enormously in a whole bunch of other states—Iowa most prominently, with all of the other marriage-equality states right behind.
