Federal Marriage Lawsuit

The lawyers for both sides of the Bush v. Gore case (Ted Olson for Bush and David Boies for Gore) have teamed up to represent two same-sex couples filing a federal lawsuit after being denied marriage licenses because of Proposition 8. Their suit, to be filed in U.S. District Court in California, calls for an injunction against the proposition, allowing immediate reinstatement of marriage rights for same-sex couples.

Is Ted Olson, the right-wing former solicitor general under George W. Bush, really that much more progressive on the issue of marriage than President Obama?
