Senate Democrats facing difficult reelections are breaking with President Obama’s endorsement of same-sex marriage, a sign the issue is politically dangerous in battleground states.
Sens. Jon Tester (Mont.) and Claire McCaskill (Mo.), the two most vulnerable Democratic senators, have declined to endorse Obama’s call for the legalization of gay marriage.
Sens. Joe Manchin (W.Va.), Bob Casey (Pa.) and Bill Nelson (Fla.), Democrats who have easier races but in states that could become more competitive by November, have also backed away from Obama’s stance

Just load up the platform on issues that really don't matter, but that bring an emotional response from the electorate, then ignore the real issues that government needs to address. Those are just too controversial, and there are no easy answers to any of them anyway.
Can't we just turn Congress off and then turn it back on again?
