Subject: OPTIMISM VS. MANDATE
First, some really encouraging news. As promised, here is the verbiage included on one of the fliers being widely circulated by Ann Arbor high school students: (Anybody connected to reporters? This would make a great local interest story with pics of some of the kids...esp. in color!) I know I'm old, but the fact that this is occurring at high schools is almost beyond comprehension to me. Hope people do everything they can to help support the students' interest in politics and their support of each other:

SICK OF PROP. 2?


Well all you can do is stand up and say what you feel. This is why there will be an open protest held in the diag against prop. 2 – Thursday, November 11, 2004 at 2:20 P.M. Wear rainbow clothes and hold up signs and speak your mind. We are the future of America, let’s allow the country to know what we believe. Nobody deserves to be oppressed."

And, the 'mandate' continues:

Rove: Bush Serious About Gay Marriage Ban
3 hours ago

WASHINGTON - President Bush in his second term "absolutely" would push for a constitutional amendment that says marriage consists only of the union of a man and a woman, White House political adviser Karl Rove said.

Bush believes states can deal with the issue of civil unions between gay people, an arrangement that if enacted would grant same-sex partners most or all the rights available to married couples, Rove said on "Fox News Sunday."

But a national ban on same-sex marriage is the only way to make sure "activist judges" don't redefine marriage, he said.

As for the Supreme Court, Rove said Bush would nominate only judges who would "strictly apply the law, strictly interpret the Constitution" from the bench.

"He views judges as the impartial umpires," Rove said. "They shouldn't be activist legislators who just happen to wear robes and never face election, ... (who) feel free to pursue their own personal or political agenda."

Rove said Sen. Arlen Specter, the Republican in line to head the Senate Judiciary Committee, has assured the president that he would make certain that all appellate nominees receive a prompt hearing and reach the Senate floor.
