Meg WhitmanInteresting. Other California residents will remember how Meg Whitman criticized state officials for not fighting to uphold Prop 8 when she ran for governor three years ago. Towleroad explains her change of heart (from her linked-in post):

The facts and arguments presented during the legal process since then have had a profound impact on my thinking.

In reviewing the amicus brief before deciding to put my signature on it, one passage struck an immediate chord with me. In explaining his own support for same-sex marriage, British Prime Minister David Cameron once said, “Society is stronger when we make vows to each other and support each other. So I don’t support gay marriage despite being a conservative. I support gay marriage because I am a conservative.”

Now the question is – will more Republicans embrace this philosophy?
