    CQ: Murkowski Backs Gay Marriage:

    Sen. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska has become the 54th sitting senator, and third Republican, to back gay marriage.

    Murkowski told of her evolution on the issue in an op-ed posted on her website, telling the story of an Alaskan lesbian couple, one of whom had served in the Alaska National Guard, and their four adopted children.

    I don't see the Republican House voting to repeal DOMA, but I think the only way now to prevent a vote to repeal it by the Senate is a filibuster.  Do the Senate Republicans really want to do that?

    How about that, Harry Reid?  What about putting a repeal on the Senate calendar?

    The influence of the [executive] has increased, is increasing, and ought to be diminished.
