Actually, doesn't the war powers act give him the ability to go to war for no reason for 90 days?
Yes that is what he used. But he used the National Guard, and if I remember correctly we are still there and the congress has not declared war yet.

As to the gay marriage thing, the initiatives can usually only give "equal rights" that are granted by the states. Thats nice (inheritance, taxes, recognizance, etc) but its not the same as marriage. Some important things still stay out such as hospitals. "Sorry but only family members can see him in ICU" and "we need to find a family member to sign this before we can save his life". There are a hundred ways every day that "only family members" comes up. Memberships, priveleges, rights. It can be very irritating for someone to run into those constantly. Equal partnership is good. Im glad to see those go thru but they are not enough.

This is why it is so very important to have a living will.
