2014? Doubtful
2016? Possible
2020? Probable

As 2012 showed us, timing is everything. Hopefully Oregon, Ohio, Colorado, & Michigan have the good sense to wait until we have the best shot at winning the next round of votes.

Wait for legislative action in Rhode Island, Delaware, Illinois, Minnesota, Hawaii, & New Jersey to bring us to 16 states by 2016 and THEN start attacking the amendments.

That would bring us to 20 states by 2020 and a likely favorable SCOTUS (Scalia can't live forever) to overturn the remaining bans.
