    ..why does he want to forbid it?

    I think you're reading something into it that isn't there. There is no federal provison set aside for it now, so he could not be legally forbidding something that does not now exist in federal law. He does not support a Constitutional ban on gay marriage. He isn't forbidding it by telling you what he personally thinks. All politics is local. The president will never really have the power to provide gay rights. Your local city councils and state legislatures have more authority over your daily lives than the President would on this issue. And to say Edwards can't deal with gays having equal rights is a false analysis of what he actually said, which is that he is pro-civil union and the substantive rights that go with their partnerships.
