Baltimoron's concerns are of course worries for me too, but it's got to be very hard for most people not to be touched (some in spite of themselves) by the sight of many of these ceremonies. It's got to be really hard to look at those 80 year-old lesbians finally getting a chance to marry and feel deeply threatened. And the experience of Massachusetts strongly suggests that states that allow gay marriage don't slide into the ocean or anything.
Obama's appeal to federalism ought to help too.
