Confused? Vice Presidential candidate Joe Biden was in town this week, doing the fundraiser thing and taping segments on Jay Leno and "The Ellen Show." On the show and to a magazine reporter, Biden said he opposes Prop 8, the ballot initiative that would eliminate gay marriage in Caliornia. But as Variety reports, Biden does not support gay marriage but nor does he support the unfairness the law would legally cause: "At the vice presidential debate with Sarah Palin, Biden said that he opposes same-sex marriage. Obama holds the same position, but also has said he opposes Proposition 8, citing the fact that it would write a restriction into a state constitution."
