In this Jan. 2 photo, Illinois Senate President John Cullerton, D-Chicago, speaks to lawmakers during a committee hearing at the Illinois State Capitol in Springfield, Ill. Despite a nudge from the home-state president, soaring support in the polls and national momentum from the November elections, the stalling of the gay marriage push in Illinois shows how tricky it is to get a legislature to approve same-sex unions. Cullerton has mentioned that same-sex marriage, along with gun control, are measures that are always going to be very, very tough to pass. AP Photo
