Let's pick SJR-7 as today's Open Thread...

So whattaya think boys and girls? Will it come of committee today with Part B removed? Will it make it past a floor vote amended? Will it go on the ballot in 2008 after all?

The floor is yours.

I think because Stonewall Democrats, IE, HRC, and many many others did such a good job of getting democrats elected to the House, providing excellent presenters at the House hearing, providing information to legislators, getting businesses and unions to come out agains SJR-7, that Rep Bauer feels the obligation to get SJR-7 amended in committee.

But I think Eric Miller has done a better job of convincing Mr. and Mrs. Church-going-Public, particularly outside Marion County, that any compromise to the original amendment is an attack on their religious beliefs and civilization in general, therefore most legislators will feel a need from their constituents that it be passed with parts A and B. (I am hoping-and acting as if--I am wrong on this part.)

Ummm... I think it'll be defeated with a 5-5 vote and dennis Oxley being the only Dem to vote for it.

Now to find a way to change the timestamp of this comment to seem clairvoyant...

Wow. That's good, Alex. If there was a winner, I'd crown you. But there's not...
