Obama Urges Illinois Lawmakers to Legalize Gay Marriage

This would make same-sex marriage legal almost next door to Tennessee. Yay! This is a Chicago Sun-Times exclusive:
 WASHINGTON--President Barack Obama is urging the Illinois General Assembly to legalize gay marriage in his home state as lawmakers are poised to take up the measure as early as this week in Springfield.
 "While the president does not weigh in on every measure being considered by state legislatures, he believes in treating everyone fairly and equally, with dignity and respect," White House spokesman Shin Inouye told the Chicago Sun-Times on Saturday.
