Gay Marriage Bill Wins in D.C. Council; New York Still Lags
Meanwhile a vote on the New York gay marriage bill is still stuck behind the budget deficit debate in the Albany queue.

(Current Governor Jon Corzine says he'd sign it.) The traditional cowardice of state legislators suggests neither measure has much of a chance.
