Governor's Race & Civic Equality (Again)

Here is another clip reviewing the Gubernatorial candidate positions on gay marriage and civil unions.  It may break my Republican heart to vote for O'Malley, but I just don't think I can see past the prospect of a veto hanging over any progress our State makes in this arena over the next four years.  Despite a number of conservatives that read this site, and have tussled with me in the past on this issue, I've yet to see a public policy argument for maintaining the ban on gay marriage and/or civil unions (if semantics is your game).  It makes me sad to see a candidate that I would otherwise support being inexplicably (other than throwing the party faithful a bone) obstinate on this issue.  Expect a run down of the candidates who oppose civic equality in the coming months (certainly before the election).

Anyone know Brian Murphy's position on this?
