    But it’s not necessary for deciding this case, just as resolving the equal protection standard-of-review question wasn’t necessary for Lawrence (and only O’Connor, of the majority, went there). And I especially think you may get that limited opinion if, as I suspect (but wouldn’t predict firmly), the Chief Justice wanted to join the majority it order to steer it that way.

    My suspicion is that if this makes it to the Supremes, Kennedy takes it in a Romer/Cleburne/Moreno direction and focuses on the animus associated with taking away the label “marriage,” rather than creating a 50-state freestanding right to marriage equality. This time.
