Silent B-J: Why our wedding nights are being met with sealed lips

by Jeremy Hooper

You may love the fact that same-sex marriage is barely being talked about by the two major party candidates or their number twos. You also may think the lack of attention is annoying, considering marriage equality is a major issue in certain states.

The AP attempts to explain why:

EXCERPT: McCain supports the amendments, Obama opposes them — yet the two nominees rarely mention them proactively as they compete for middle-of-the-road voters who rank the marriage debate low on their list of concerns.
