    IMHO, he will be an ideal advocate before SCUSA: well prepared, experienced before the Court and knowledgeable about the logic and tendencies of each Justice.  I believe he and Boies were careful to tailor the Prop. 8 trial specifically with SCUSA in mind.  

    A reasoned, well-cited legal argument for gay marriage rights from a known conservative may hold more weight with "certain" Justices.

    And on a personal note, I suspect the loss of his wife Barbara on 9/11 and his subsequent marriage to a self-described Democrat may have encouraged his commitment to the belief that all people should have the right to marry the person they love.  

    Sometimes it's better to individually address a problem rather than just criticize our politicians for failing to do so.
