John McCain on Gay Marriage: “Smart people tell me…”

OOOOPS! What happens when smart people are wrong?

John McCain: “Smart people tell me that that decision will be reversed by a higher court.”

In September, 2007, Senator John McCain was in Gladbrook, Ia. campaigning at a house party. He spoke on the lawn at the home of Lynn and Claire Handorf and then took questions from the audience and press.

Regarding a Polk County ruling that allowed at least one gay couple to marry in Des Moines, Senator McCain said, “Smart people tell me that that decision will be reversed by a higher court.”

McCain said he would support a constitutional amendment banning gay marriage, “if there was a superior federal court that said that the states don’t have the right to regulate the status of marriage…but I certainly don’t [support an amendment] when the states are deciding.”

My new question: Where are these smart people now?
