Feingold Comes Out... For Same Sex Marriage

It is being reported by both and that Senator Russ Feingold (D, WI) has announced his support for same sex marriage. Said Feingold . . .
Gay and lesbian couples should be able to marry and have access to the same rights, privileges and benefits that straight couples currently enjoy.
It's interesting that this is coming from the Senator with by far the most libertarian voting record in the Senate with a score of 90%, according to a study by Logan Ferree. By comparison, other leading Presidential contenders such as Senators Clinton (D, NY) and McCain (R, AZ) scored 60% and 47%, respectively, and neither of them supports marriage equality.
