  •  my bet? (0+ / 0-)

    I think the court will vote in favor of gay marraige.  In particular, I think both Olsen ( arguing in favor of gay rights) and Roberts will take the postion that gay rights are constitutionally protected to preserve their place in history.

    Olsen wuold otherwise be remembered for winning Bush v Gore, and giving us 8 years of Bush.  By arguing the pro-gay case now, he hopes to salvage his legacy.  Likewise, Roberts voted for Obamacare to preserve his legacy, and is likely to want to be on the right side of history on this issue as well.

    Cynical view? yes.  but likely true.

    As my father used to say,"We have the best government money can buy."

      marriage equality,..on our side, Ted Olsen...Bush's solicitor general, the Obama solicitor general and David Bois who argued for Gore in Bush v Gore . The side of marriage equality has some very strong legal minds with vast experience.
