SCHWARZENEGGER - Gays working for him? Okay! Letting them marry? Not so much.

I'm not sure what I think of this story. To be honest, I'm personally disgusted that any self-respecting gay person would ever go work for someone like this (from MSNBC):

"We cannot have a system where the people vote and the Legislature derails that vote," the governor's press secretary, Margita Thompson, said in a statement. "Out of respect for the will of the people, the governor will veto (the bill)."
Yeah, those unelected legislators huh? Which makes this story all the more bizarre. From the San Francisco Chronicle:
Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger -- attempting to regain his political footing after a devastating special election defeat this month -- has begun a shakeup of his administration by replacing his chief of staff with a former state Democratic Party official and top adviser to former Gov. Gray Davis, Democratic and Republican sources said Tuesday.
Appointed by Davis to the California Public Utilities Commission in 2003, Kennedy had made her name as a political operative as the head of the California branch of the National Abortion Rights Action League. A longtime gay rights activist, Kennedy married her partner, Vicki Marti, in a 1999 ceremony in Hawaii attended by many California political insiders.
We know that the Republicans will judge Schwarzenegger. Should we judge Ms. Kennedy for going to work for him? Read the article and tell us what you think.

(Thanks for the heads up from Callie in the comments)
