Another Odd Couple in Marriage Fight

John Podesta and Robert Levy are on opposite ends of the spectrum, but they have agreed to co-chair the advisory board of the American Foundation for Equal Rights. That’s the group that is backing the Prop 8 trial up in San Francisco.

Podesta, who leads the Center for American Progress, and Levy, chairman of the Cato Institute, wrote an op-ed in tomorrow’s Washington Post announcing their support.

They write, “Although we serve, respectively, as president of a progressive and
chairman of a libertarian think tank, we are not joining the
foundation’s advisory board to present a “bipartisan” front. Rather, we
have come together in a nonpartisan fashion because the principle of
equality before the law transcends the left-right divide and cuts to the
core of our nation’s character. This is not about politics; it’s about
an indispensable right vested in all Americans.”

Closing arguments in the case are scheduled for April 16.
