should have more say.
"I think there should be a vote on it so that
the decision on gay marriage truly represents
what the public wants, she said.
Garrett said if Massachusetts does allow gay
marriages, then same-sex couples will have the
opportunity to challenge the constitutionality of
the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act under the
Full Faith and Credit clause of the Constitution.
The DOMA allows states to decide whether
to recognize same-sex marriages, but accord-
ing to the constitutional clause, states have to
recognize the marriage laws of other states.
"By passing an amendment to the U.S.
Constitution to define marriage, Bush and
Congress will prevent challenges to DOMA
and also prevent individual states from mak-
ing their own decisions about same-sex mar-
riage," Garrett said.
Brian Hull, co-chair of the Michigan Stu-
dent Assembly's LGBT Commission, said San
Fransisco's decision to issue marriage licenses
to gay couples was also a factor in Bush's
"I think he wanted to wait until later in his
re-election campaign to bring it up, but the
actions of the city of San Francisco forced him
to act sooner than he wanted to," said Hull, an
Additionally, Bush mentioned "activist
judges" several times in his speech.
Vose said "activism" is a term that conser-
vatives use every time a court makes a contro-
Garrett said she thinks Bush feels that the
views of these "activist judges" are not repre-
sentative of the views of the general population.
Both Vose and Garrett said the U.S.
Supreme Court's Lawrence v. Texas decision
last year may also have been another court
ruling that prompted Bush's use of the word
"activism." That court decision struck down
sodomy laws as unconstitutional.
Garrett said many conservatives feel the
ruling opened the door for gay marriage.
"When sodomy was illegal, then that kept gay
marriage illegal. Now sodomy laws are no
longer a factor," she said.
Garrett, Vose and Hull said their organiza-
tions do not currently have any events planned
to promote discussion of or show opposition
to Bush's proposed amendment, but that is
likely to change as the year progresses.
Hull said the LGBT Commission will
address the issue of gay marriages at its rally
at the end of Queer Visibility Week, to be held
on March 26.

find out that John Kerry finds two sides for
every issue," he said. "He has a proclivity for
flip-flopping. John Kerry's record never match-
es his rhetoric.
"What you're seeing coming out of the
Democratic primary process is candidate
after candidate saying what they're against,"
Madden added. "People want to see what
your ideas are, not merely what you
Madden said Bush's campaign blueprint
centers on the president's positive agenda,
contrasting this approach to perceived nega-
tivity from Kerry's campaign.
Part of that agenda includes Bush's tax
relief plan, which he aims to make permanent.
"Fundamentally, taxpayers should have
control over their own money," Madden said.
Bush has reiterated the stock accusation
that Democrats stand for big government and
expect taxpayers to foot the bill.
Kerry spokesman Dag Vega responded to
this litany of claims by asserting the steadfast-
ness of Kerry's positions and legislative
record. He defended Kerry's vote for the Sen-
ate resolution authorizing Bush to use force in
Iraq if former dictator Saddam Hussein con-
tinued to breach U.N. resolutions.
"John Kerry supported the war only if Bush
fulfilled all diplomatic means at his disposal,"
He added that the Bush campaign is trying
to polarize the American public with "wedge
issues" like the war and gay marriage in an
attempt to distract it from economic losses
suffered during Bush's presidency.
Responding to Madden's claim that Kerry
has attacked Bush without offering policy
alternatives, Vega said Kerry's proposals have
been clearly defined.
While Kerry's attacks are being increasing-
ly directed against Bush rather than his
Democratic rival Edwards, Vega said the race
for the Democratic nomination has not ended.
"The nomination process is not over yet.
We are campaigning aggressively in all the
Super Tuesday states," he said. "We don't
want to call it before the American people
Vega also responded to Bush's characteri-
zation of Democrats as big spenders.
"Bush's investments in government pro-
grams have almost matched spending levels
Despite a record-breaking deficit that
Democrats attribute to Bush's fiscal irre-
sponsibility, Madden expressed confidence
in the strength of Bush's support among col-
"A lot more college-age voters are identify-
ing themselves as Republicans," he said, cit-
ing an October Harvard University survey as
evidence of growing conservatism on cam-
The poll showed Bush's approval rating
among college students was 61 percent, eight
points higher than among the general public.
The Harvard poll also revealed students
place greater stock in a president's leadership
strength than in his policies.
"Our greatest advantage is the president's
leadership qualities," Madden said.
He added that Kerry's 32 years in the poli-
cy-making arena gives the Bush campaign
ample fuel for criticism.
One debate is already takinlg shape - Bush
will continue to attack the probable Democra-
tic nominee for proposing to eliminate some
or all of Bush's tax cuts, a move he will cast
as a tax hike.
The gearing up of Bush's re-election
machine may be a response to his weakened
public image. Kerry and Edwards beat Bush
by margins of at least 10 points in head-to-
head matchups in the most recent CNN/USA
Today/Gallup Poll. The Feb. 18 poll was the
first in which Edwards beat Bush.

competition for Best Actor
remained uncertain until Nicole
Kidman opened the envelope. Sean
Penn won for his performance in
"Mystic River," but as was the
theme of the night, it is yet another
rewarding of career achievement.
As predicted, "The Lord of the
Rings: The Return of the King" was
the big winner. Peter Jackson final-
ly stood victorious, picking up
awards for Best Picture and Direc-
tor among others. Having received
11 nominations, "Return of the
King" made it a clean sweep. After
two failed attempts to pick up the
big prizes, the trilogy was rewarded
for its collective effort in addition
to the individual achievement of the
