    Something about Mary Cheney 

    It can't be easy for Vice President Dick Cheney right now. His boss, President Bush, is urging Congress to approve a constitutional amendment banning gay marriage.

    Meanwhile, Cheney's daughter Mary is a lesbian, as well as director of vice presidential operations for the Bush-Cheney '04 re-election campaign.

    Four years ago, Cheney said this should not be a federal issue.

    "People should be free to enter into any kind of relationship they want to enter into. It's really no one else's business," he said at a vice presidential candidates' debate during the 2000 campaign. "I think different states are likely to come to different conclusions, and that's appropriate. I don't think there should necessarily be a federal policy in this area."

    Cheney has said since that he would support Bush's decision.

    Have something to say about it? A group called Don'tAmend.com suggests you write a letter to Mary Cheney.
