Prop 8 all over again? Maine marriage foes say they're victorious

Despite the recent legislative victory in Maine for same-sex marriage, the fight will go on in that state. And if LGBT Americans aren't careful, Maine will become a gut-wrenching re-run of California where same-sex marriage was a fleeting right that was taken away by Proposition 8. AP is now reporting that marriage foes say they have collected enough signatures to delay implementation of marriage equality in Maine and to force a statewide vote on the issue.

I personally think the national LGBT community needs to put everything we have into Maine - no reserves, no march on DC, no prop 8 repeal (for now) - we need to win in Maine, finally win one of these elections and Maine is winnable if we heed the lessons of CA.
