|Sam Adams easily won Portland's mayoral race yesterday, becoming the first openly gay mayor of any major US city. With a population of more than 500K, Portland is the largest city in a state that in 2004 voted to amend its constitution to declare that marriage is only legal when it's between a man and a woman. Asked if it was odd that he can be mayor -- but not married -- in Oregon, Adams said it was "surreal."|
