Governator Speaks Out Against Prop 8
(A Little Too Late)

Schwarzenegger: "They had a very, very strong campaign, the pro-Proposition 8 people, and I think that the people that tried to defeat it did not have, maybe, as good a campaign or had as much money behind it, whatever. I think it is unfortunate, obviously, but it's not the end, because I think this will go back into the courts, this will go back to the Supreme Court, because the Supreme Court very clearly in California has declared this unconstitutional. It's the same as in the 1948 case when blacks and whites were not allowed to marry. This falls into the same category. So, I think that we will again, you know, maybe undo that, if the court is willing to do that, and then move forward from there and again lead in that area. ... Because of the big turnout amongst African-Americans and Latinos, that had an effect also, which they did not expect, so there's all kinds of other things there. And I think the religious groups have done a really big campaign, a lot of them, to support Proposition 8, and so on, and so it's a very, very difficult thing. ... (Y)ou should never ever give up. ... They (gays) should never give up. They should be on it and on it until they get it done."
