Did Maggie Gallagher really just predict DOMA's demise?

by Jeremy Hooper

I have an email in to Maggie asking her to confirm. However, regulars at the Family Scholars site (which is a David Blankenhorn property) seem to think these comments are legit:

COMMENT SOURCE: Family Scholars
(h/t: Str8Grandmother)

If the legitimacy holds, then this is quite newsworthy. Maggie has been one of DOMA's staunchest defenders (at least in recent years; she initially called it "timid"). Maggie's beloved National Organization for Marriage has dedicated an entire project to "defending DOMA." Regardless of the more hopeful prediction (in her view) on Prop 8—which I, by the way, think is way off the mark both in predicted outcome and in spirit—her concession on this one key agenda item is a pretty major one.

Write me back, Maggie.
