Richard,
Bravo, very important distinctions you draw. There is one aspect here though that I think is being overlooked: if the Democratic party takes control of the Senate, which it appears they have, we have some protection against the appointment of another Scalia-type Supreme Court justice if, any God forbid, we lose another one in the next two years.

On a technical point, State constitutional amendments have no impact on Federal law-- there already is a Federal law banning gay marriage. There is no cumulative legal effect if one or six more States pass State constitutional amendments. However, if Congress were to pass a US Constitutional amendment, then the States would have the chance to ratify that amendment and we can use the current number of State amendments to divine how that would play out.

The goal we should have is to make sure Congress keeps a US Constitutional amendment off its agenda.

As usual you cut to the reality of the "WIN". People still don't like to admit there are Gays everywhere. On another note, have you considered an Enemies List? I think we need to track the worst of the worst. Maybe you could start awarding prizes for cruelty and malice, just a thought.
