Incremental progress was the best that could be accomplished for now. No one, not even the "rumored" to be lesbian former Gov. of HI, thinks this somehow marks the end of efforts for marriage equality in HI and federally.

And this version of civil unions doesn't have the poison pill provisions that the R.I. one had, so far as I know.

Incremental progrees is what has brought us to the turning point in civil rights where we now stand. The state will not fall apart because of civil unions, and the marriage bans will just seem that more senseless in the future.
