Kerry's Latest Gay Marriage Dodge

Yesterday Kerry refused to comment on gay marriages in San Francisco, pleading ignorance:

Democratic front-runner John Kerry yesterday claimed he's unfamiliar with the much-publicized gay marriages being conducted by the mayor of San Francisco, so he can't express an opinion about whether they're right or wrong.

"I haven't made any judgment about it. I haven't really kept up with exactly what he is doing," Kerry told a press conference at York College in Queens.

There have been more than 3,000 gay marriages in San Francisco over the last two weeks in heavily publicized acts of civil disobedience that have touched off a national debate.

Eventually, he is going to have to take a position on this issue. It's not very convincing that Kerry would have no opinion on something that's such a hot topic, and if he truly doesn't, then that's a problem too. If you're running for president, aren't you supposed to have views on such things?
