for filibuster-proof majorities.)
Who will lead Maine's
Democrats out of the wilderness and into actual control of the State House?
How many things will get thrown across Capitol Street
between the Blaine House and the State House?
What things will they be? And who will throw them?
Unsurprisingly, Carroll Conley is pleased about the outcome of Tuesday's gay-marriage vote in North Carolina, and non-plussed by President Barack Obama's confirmation yesterday that he supports the right of same-sex couples to marry.
Conley, who serves as executive director of the Christian Civic League of Maine (which has teamed up with the National Organization for Marriage (NOM) to create Protect Marriage Maine -- the group that will lead the campaign against same-sex marriage leading up to the referendum vote this November), happened to be in North Carolina this week for his son's college graduation.
State Republicans and Ron Paul supporters seem to be getting more, not less, worked up about Saturday's "presidential preference" poll results, in which Mitt Romney was declared Maine's caucus winner by a small margin.
