State attorney general explains his position on domestic partnership law

The Appleton Post-Crescent recently ran an interview with Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen in which he argues that the creation of state-recognized legal status for domestic partners is unconstitutional, but domestic partnership benefits are okay.

Too bad they didn't ask a follow-up question: If the state isn't allowed to create a legal mechanism by which to recognize domestic partnerships, how can it determine who is eligible for domestic partner benefits?
