Shifting GOP winds on marriage equality?
Last week, 131 prominent Republicans signed a friend-of-the-court brief urging the U.S. Supreme Court to rule that California’s Proposition 8 law is unconstitutional. The court is set to hear arguments on the matter March 26th. On Monday’s NOW with Alex Wagner panel, one of the signatories–Nicolle Wallace, former Communications Director for President George W. Bush–discussed the party’s evolution on gay marriage. “I don’t think this is a political third rail at all,” Wallace said when Alex asked her if the issue was political Kryptonite for Republicans. “Good politics are usually borne out of good policies and there is a recognition that we need a base of policies that appeal to a broader swath of America.”
