Hope In NJ Or A Political Move?

NJ Governor Jon Corzine has promised to bring gay marriage to NJ if reelected in November. Corzine says gay marriage is a “fundamental right” and has promised to back a gay marriage bill, after he's elected to a second term. Corzine has not always been a fan of same-sex marriage. In 2005 he held that marriage should be between a man and a woman, but he has since :evolved on the issue." Corzine's opponent, Chris Christie, has moved his position closer to the center, but believes civil unions are sufficient for same-sex couples.
One has to be wary that Corzine's move may just be a political maneuver, but one has to also hope that he truly believes in his position and will fight for the right of same-sex couples to have full rights in NJ. Corzine has said previously that has a "progressive record" in regards to NJ.

Oh please, this guy is desperate for four more years and he'll say anything to get in. Of course, he's got my vote (like I'm going to vote for Christie), but I don't trust him; or any politician, they lie through their teeth to get elected and once they've secured their place, it's business as usual.

I don't dislike him personally, but you are right: politicians are ALL the same. They do or say whatever to get in. It almost always comes down to the worse of 2 evils!
