    Susan Collins was a leader in repealing DADT and voted against a federal marriage amendment, twice. But she is still undecided on equal marriage rights for gay couples.

    “Historically, laws regulating family and domestic affairs have been almost exclusively regulated by the states which is why I have voted against federal constitutional amendments defining marriage. Next month, the voters in Maine will be asked to decide if they will allow the state to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples. Like voters in my state, I am considering this issue very carefully.”

    Lets hope she falls on the right side of history.
