This week, the buzzword was "hope" for many voters around the country. But not for gay and lesbian couples in California, where the electorate passed ballot Proposition 8 - a constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriage.
Supporters of the ban are now discussing legal action to try to invalidate the 17,000 same-sex marriages that have taken place in California since they were legalized in June. Meanwhile, three lawsuits have been filed to overturn the ban.
