Defense Of Marriage Act, 1996
As the excitement swirls around Sen. Sanitarium, we recall the Defense of Marriage Act, passed back in 1996 and signed by a nervous Bill Clinton. The Senate vote
was 85 to 14, with Joe Lieberman and Bob Graham among the supporters. Of the other current Presidential candidates, both John Kerry and Carol Mosely-Braun opposed the bill. John Edwards had the good judgement to be in private practice, and ducked this one.
In the House
, Dick Gephardt appears among the supporters.
Profiles in courage.
