Cheney to the left of Obama on SSM?

Will the media pile accolades on Dick Cheney for his promotion of Same Sex Marriage Rights? In a dramatic rebuke to both of the Presidential nominees in the 2008 election, he has expressed support of gays' rights to marry.

"I think people ought to be free to enter into any kind of union they wish, any kind of arrangement they wish."

Both the maverick John McCain, and President Obama stressed during the campaign that they believe marriage is "between a man and a woman". Notably, Vice President Biden made a point of noting that he, too, is against gay marriage.

It is unclear whether this shift toward less rights for gays in the Vice President's office will gain traction in the National media.
