2008 Schwarzenegger to Girly Men (and Other Gays): “Never Give Up”

I don’t think this made it onto Slog yesterday, so, via a tipper in New York who sees it as yet another sign of the changed world we’re living in:
Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger on Sunday expressed hope that the California Supreme Court would overturn Proposition 8, the ballot initiative that outlawed same-sex marriage. He also predicted that the 18,000 gay and lesbian couples who have already wed would not see their marriages nullified by the initiative.
“It’s unfortunate, obviously, but it’s not the end,” Schwarzenegger said in an interview Sunday on CNN. “I think that we will again maybe undo that, if the court is willing to do that, and then move forward from there and again lead in that area.”
…With his favorable comments toward gay marriage, the governor’s thinking appears to have evolved on the issue…
On Sunday, he urged backers of gay marriage to follow the lesson he learned as a bodybuilder trying to lift weights that were too heavy for him at first. “I learned that you should never ever give up… . They should never give up. They should be on it and on it until they get it done.”
