Obama Calls From Air Force One To Congratulate Prop 8 Challengers

A little trip to Africa won't stop President Obama from congratulating two women who won their battle against Proposition 8 in the Supreme Court. Kris Perry and Sandy Stier were two plaintiffs in the case that effectively defeated Prop 8 on Wednesday, clearing the way for the couple to marry in their home state of California. The Human Rights Campaign President Chad Griffin held the phone while two additional plaintiffs, Jeff Zarrillo and Paul Katami, gathered to hear the president's remarks about their courage.
