Bush flip-flops on civil unions issue.
Once again the very weird "civil unions - which are exactly the same as marriage - are ok, as long as you don't actually call it a marriage." So does that mean he'd be willing to pass a constitutional amendment worded such that it doesn't affect civil unions and/or state laws per se, but would just prevent anyone from calling it "marriage?"
Our president confuses me. Then again, Cheney flip-flopped on this as well. At least they're in essence bucking the party platform, although it's interesting that Bush does it 5 days before the election (to prevent a lot of publicity that might hurt his voter base, perhaps?).
