    Say what you want about Arnold, he has integrity. The California legislature tried to pass a law permitting gay marriage when the people already voted on it years ago through direct referendum. We all know how Arnold feels personally about the issue. but he set aside his personal issues to respect the will of the people. You have to respect that.

    God bless him. More politicians need to 'do the right thing'.

    I wonder if it will be seen that way by those on the other side of the issue. Will they vote out the people that went against their will and voted for this legislation?

    I agree, good on him. let's hope other governors are willing to stand up to their legislatures in places like NY, PA, OH, IL, CO, etc etc.

    I'm pretty sure Bill Owens would veto such legislation.
