i'm sure he'll make me live to regret this, but he actually seems a rather pragmatic legislator, aside from a tendency towards conciliation on everything with everyone and a somewhat naive view of police rules of force. it could very well be quite the historic day.

And he loves The Gays.

Paterson has been on record in support of marriage equality as early as 1994. When Paterson was asked if he would take part in pushing through the marriage bill following his inauguration in January 2007, he told the New York Blade, Im not going to be in that fight -- Im going to be in front of that fight because my first day as [senate minority leader] was the day we passed the Sexual Orientation Non-Discrimination Act. One of the reasons we need same-sex marriage is because the statistics for heterosexual marriage are so bad; that might be a way to upgrade some of the success rates.

As far back as 1987, Paterson refused to pass a state hate-crimes bill that didnt provide protections for gays and lesbians. He was willing to let everything go down rather than to exclude us, Sherrill recalled.
