Will California's Proposition 8 Survive the US Supreme Court?

Hosted by

Only fools try to predict decisions by the US Supreme Court, but after today's arguments about Proposition 8, there's a cautious consensus that the Court might make a very narrow decision. It might even decide not to decide on same-sex marriage one way or the other. What would that mean in California, where Prop 8 banned same-sex marriage in 2008, but where polls show there's now a majority in favor of opening up the institution to gays and lesbians?  On our rebroadcast of today's To the Point, more on today's arguments from inside the courtroom.
