Schwarzenegger's going to meet with the queers

Who knows it if will go anywhere, but this is a remarkably classy move from Schwarzenegger.

Schwarzenegger Seeks Meeting With Gays Over Marriage Veto:

Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger asked Wednesday for a meeting with leaders of California's gay community, angry over his threatened veto of legislation to allow same-sex marriage.

The meeting will take place in the governor's Sacramento office next Wednesday. It will include Equality California executive director Geoff Kors and two other members of the EQCA board. Also taking part will be senior staffers for the governor. The meeting will be chaired by the governor's chief of staff, but Schwarzenegger has not committed to be there himself.

Nevertheless, EQCA Wednesday night called the invitation a major step forward.

On the table will be a number of concerns for the LGBT community in the state, but chief among them is the marriage bill.

I don't have a lot of faith in Schwarzenegger, but this move shows that he might be willing to think about his future policies. We can only hope, huh?
