    Nice to see him do the right thing and admit it publicly and honestly.
    I agree with your last comment: "A party that has built its power by demonizing government should understand that advocating for government meddling in people's personal lives is a long-term political loser." The Republican party platform is internally consistent that way. How can you be for smaller government in terms of taxes but not in terms of civil rights? I guess you COULD make the reverse argument against progressives, but I think that government should be there to protect us, to make sure that we all have a fair shake. Sometimes that costs money.
