What a difference a day makes. The Supreme Court on Wednesday morning struck down the federal Defense of Marriage Act. The ruling, as expected, does not establish a universal right to same-sex marriage.

Instead, Kennedy and the four liberal justices declared that DOMA deprives same-sex couples of “equal protection” under the law.
