Gay Marriage Amendment Fails

The US House of Representatives failed Thursday to get enough votes to pass a proposed amendment to the Constitution to bar same-sex marriage.

227 members voted for the amendment, while 186 voted against it, falling short of the two-thirds needed for passage.

I'm still surprised that 227 voted for it. That's a lot of people.

Also, I'm confused as to the current status of gay marriage in the U.S. This doesn't mean gay marriage is legal in the states... does it just mean it's illegal for the federal government to ban it?

I'm for gay marriage 100%, but I kind of think Cheney's position is alright, too. Marriage is in the jurisdiction of the states, and I think it might help a gradual transition towards having gay marriage legal in all 50 states.
