Flash: Bush proposes Constitutional Amendment banning same-sex marriage

On Tuesday, George W. Bush officially endorsed a Constitutional Amendment banning same-sex marriage. It seems unlikely that this amendment will pass, as already several Republicans have indicated their opposition, and Democratic opposition is solid.
