The Democrat trying to unseat California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger says he would do what his opponent couldn't--sign a same-sex marriage bill into law.

The Democrat trying to unseat California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger announced Friday that he would do what the Republican former Mr. Universe couldn't and sign a same-sex marriage bill into law. Phil Angelides held a news conference along with New York senator Hillary Clinton the day after the highest court in her state refused to recognize same-sex marriage, saying it was up to the legislature. Last year Schwarzenegger vetoed a bill that would have legalized same-sex marriage in California for the exact opposite reason, saying it was up to the courts or the voters to decide and not the legislature. Though Senator Clinton ducked questions about the New York court ruling, Angelides said that if California's legislature were to pass another same-sex marriage bill, he would sign it. He told reporters simply, "If we can get behind people to build a lasting relationship, that is a good thing." A poll this week by the research institute at San Jose State University shows Angelides trailing Schwarzenegger by seven points. (Sirius OutQ News)
