California Supreme Court & Prop 8

I've done a bit of reading online this morning...of various takes on the prospects of Prop 8 before the Ca. court. Generally, it seems that the feeling is that the court will uphold 8. In fact, one observer thinks that the reason the court agreed to hear the case quickly is that the justices have already made up their minds to uphold 8. One justice that voted for gay marriage back in the Spring voted against hearing the case - but that could have been for "procedural" reasons. Another justice voted to stay the proposition until the court could review it. That would indicate that there is at least one vote on our side. We won't have a decision until probably mid-2009 at the earliest. Will the gay community mount an ongoing public campaign of demonstrations against 8 lasting until then?
