VT legalizes gay marriage, overrides veto

From NBC's Domenico Montanaro
The Vermont legislature legalized gay marriage by overriding Republican Gov. Jim Douglas's veto.

Douglas issued the veto yesterday. The state legislature needed a two-thirds majority to override it, and got it.

Vermont is the fourth state to legalize gay marriage. Iowa did so last week. The others: Massachusetts and Connecticut.
