Laura Bush Told Discuss The Economy Not Changing The Constitution
by Doreen Brandt Newscenter

(Washington) Laura Bush was told Tuesday to focus on the economy and other issues Americans are concerned about rather than enter a divisive national debate about amending the Constitution to stop same-sex couples from marrying.

Last week the First Lady told the Boston Globe that gay marriage "an issue that a lot of people have a lot of trouble with."

Stopping just short of endorsing a proposed federal constitutional amendment to ban same-sex union that is supported by her husband, Mrs Bush said that the American people, not a few judges, should have a voice in setting the important social policy.

Her comments came as the first legal gay weddings were taking place in Boston.
