As the Supreme Court today considers whether to invalidate California's Proposition 8, which revoked marriage equality in 2008, the state's Attorney General is clear about why she refused to defend the voter-approved initiative in court. 

"I am absolutely against a ban on same-sex marriages because they are simply unconstitutional," AG Kamala Harris told CNN's Candy Crowley on Sunday. But beyond a basic constitutional clarity, Harris says there's an even more important issue at hand: "We have 50,000 children in California right now," explains Harris, "who are asking: why can't my parents be married, too?"
