Is Marriage Equality a Civil Rights Issue?

6a0111686ab237970c017d41332034970c Tuesday on "The Alan Colmes Show," Alan spoke with David Boies and Ted Olson, who once argued on opposite sides during the Bush v. Gore lawsuit, and then worked side by side on the issue of marriage equality.

Boies and Olson have written a book chronicling their fight called "Redeeming The Dream: The Case For Marriage Equality."

The two celebrated litigators discussed how they initially became friends despite their political differences, why marriage is a conservative value, and why gay marriage is not only not a threat to traditional marriage, but actually improves on it.
