    I think that sometime, probably many, many years from now, people will look back and say that this was America at its best. One of the finest things we've done really, and way overdue.

    Now for marriage rights, right? Not just equal protection but equal recognition under the law. This bill should give momentum and guide that trajectory.  

    We're a humane and sensible bunch when we want to be, when something actually wakes us up, which should give even the most pessimistic of us hope.  

    God Bless Conyers and others responsible for following this one through. It's rare that the better angels prevail on the hill. But may he especially benefit from this or at least use this as a turning point to get himself right with his constituents and the Congress.

    Cheers,
