Marriage equality in New England, redux

It seems that today is Gay Marriage in New England Day. Hurrah! Via Andrew:
The New Hampshire House narrowly passed a bill today that would allow gay couples to marry.

The final vote on HB 436 was 186-179, and came after nearly three hours of debate.

The bill now moves to the Senate.

The margin was closer than in Vermont. One thing the two thing states have in common is spineless governors.
Gov. John Lynch does not support same-sex marriage. His press secretary Colin Manning said, “The civil unions bill he signed into law prevents discrimination and provides the same legal protections to all New Hampshire families to the extent that is possible under federal law."
It should be noted that Gov. Lynch is a Democrat, proving that (on this issue, at least) both parties have some craven leaders in high office.
