Time Event
2:40p
5 to 4
The Supreme Court voted 5-4 to deal a blow to the Voting Rights Act, and 5-4 to do the same to DOMA. Justices Roberts, Thomas, Scalia, and Alito, were in the majority to thwack voting rights, and in the minority to keep marriage discrimination; Justices Ginsburg, Breyer, Sotomayor, and Kagan, were in the minority wanting to protect voting rights, and in the majority for equal rights.

One more Obama appointee on the Supreme Court, and the Voting Rights Act would've survived unharmed.

One McCain or Romney appointee, and the VRA would've been thwacked but DOMA remained fully in force.

Keep that in mind in 2016.
