Good on Chicago Mayor Richard Daley:
After a historic vote legalizing civil unions this week, Mayor Daley on Thursday welcomed the Illinois General Assembly into “this new century” and urged lawmakers to “move faster” — and legalize gay marriage.
“Finally, they realized they should have the same rights under state law. But eventually, [gay] marriage will take place. It has to. . . . We have to move faster,” the mayor said.

Hmm. If only we could think of another prominent Chicagoan who could help facilitate America’s marriage progress. Hmm. We’re simply stumped. Can anyone think of one?
