College Kids Boo Santorum

Speaking to students at the College Convention today, Rick Santorum faced questions about gay marriage and found himself in a tense back-and-forth. One student asked the presidential candidate why equality did not include marriage for gay couples, to which Santorum responded ever so vaguely, “Don't you have to make the positive argument why the law should be changed?” Santorum really got terse, however, when asked whether gay people have a right to happiness through marriage. "If you're not happy unless you're married to five other people, is that OK?" he asked to resounding boos. Frustrated by the candidate's insistence on comparing gay marriage with polygamy, many students booed Santorum as he left the room. According to ABC News’s Shushannah Walshe, the Santorum campaign has raised $2 million in the 48 hours since his Iowa almost-win.
