Frank Bruni writes about marriage equality and compares the positions of New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) and Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley (D). Bruni says, "Both politicians were talking about family values, two words that have often been invoked in the argument against same-sex marriage. It’s time to turn the phrase around. What gay and lesbian couples are asking is to be recognized as families. And they’re just idealistic enough to hope that everyone realizes how much value there is in that."
