Washington State is giving gay couples just about everything that comes along with marriage — just not the word itself. But what if legislators were able to move the ball in that direction? What would Democratic Gov. Christine Gregoire do with it? Let The Slog answer your wildest fantasies:

“I want to see a bill on my desk,” she replies.
And: Presumably you don’t want to see a bill on your desk just so you can veto the thing?
“I want to see a bill on my desk,” the gov repeats.
Everything clear now?
