Hopefully not totally overshadowed by the debate hoopla, the House Thursday failed to get the necessary two-thirds majority to pass a proposed federal constitutional amendment to ban gay marriage. Stephanie Herseth voted in favor of the amendment. This vote comes a day after she voted to repeal a law banning most handguns in the District of Columbia.
I am bemused by concerns about having three Democrats in South Dakota’s congressional delegation. You wouldn’t know it from her voting record so far.
