Great pro-same-sex-marriage speeches from NY

Several of the New York state Senators said really good things about same-sex marriage during the debate the other day. Joe.My.God has a post, New York's Heroes, showing YouTube videos of four particularly good statements. Each takes a different tack, and they're all excellent; all of them brought tears to my eyes, for different reasons.

But if you have time for only one of the four, I especially recommend Sen. Diane Savino's statement. She's been getting a lot of well-deserved attention around the web for this speech. She's a little rough around the edges at first (she mentions that she's nervous, and it shows), but keep watching—if nothing else, watch the pedicab bit, for about a minute and a half starting around 3:10.
