Prop 8: Sen. Barbara Boxer Reacts to Ban on Gay Marriage (Video)

"The really awful truth is that - that's really telling all the other people that they can't get married when 18,000 couples did - that sets up a terrible mess and a nightmare. We're going to have to go back to the ballot and, I believe, say to the people of California: 'Listen, whatever your feelings on this, you can't have separate rules, ipso facto, that's separate, but equal and it's not right.'... So it's a tough, tough decision and I'm very disappointed."

"This time I hope that people of good will will come together across party lines across the state and say in our state everyone must be treated equally. And I think that is something I'm going to work on very hard, Rachel."
