Steve Schmidt Unplugged

In his first public move since the election, John McCain's top advisor during the general election campaign called out the GOP's stance on gay marriage, going so far as to question the party's sustainability if it refuses to reevaluate it.
"If you put public policy issues to a religious test, you risk becoming a religious party," he said. "And in a free country a political party cannot be viable in the long-term if it is seen as a sectarian party."

"The Bullet" is right. The electorate is growing more averse to limiting the marriage rights of gays and lesbians every year, say the numbers (you know the saying). I just wonder if any of the GOP's current lineup of power players will even listen to the numbers--or to Mr. Schmidt.
