You may recall that Meg Whitman, the California Republican gubernatorial candidate and billionaire former CEO of eBay, was a major supporter of Proposition 8. The Mercury News interviewed Whitman and she was asked to clarify her positions on the gays:
"Asked to reconcile her stance against same-sex marriage with her willingness to allow gays and lesbians to adopt children, Whitman said she believes the term 'marriage' should apply only to the union of a man and a woman. Still, she's in favor of granting equal rights to gay people through civil unions and domestic partnerships. She approves letting gays adopt because "many kids need a great home."
Is gay adoption controversial in California? I don't think it is. But a cookie for Whitman for agreeing that "many kids" need a home.
