Agreed 100%.It really is probably best they not take the Prop 8 case and just move on to the DOMA cases. Californians can get married, if DOMA parts are struck down and the firewall between marriage equality an US law is taken down the rest is a piece of cake, still baking but ready any time the country is hungry enough. Those of us who need federal rules taken down can just head to equality states to get married, come back home and move forward with our lives. States still blocking will lose out on millions in new income and sooner than later get on the bandwagon letting the rest wait till it heads back to the Supremes.
The SCOTUS taking the Prop 8 case can only be bad news for us, because the only reason they'd take the case would be to UPHOLD Prop8, thereby setting a new precedent for state consitutional bans.
The best result is getting federal recognition of existing marriages, and then working to overturn bans state-by-state until the court has a solid liberal majority. THEN we take the next step in federal court.
I know everyone is antsy for the "big win", but realistically this is going to take another decade.
