From Massimo Calabresi:

Well it’s kind of a rule of thumb for those covering the Supreme Court not to try and draw judgements from the oral arguments because they often go in a very different direction, as we’ve seen in a number of recent cases. I would say that [Justice¬†Anthony] Kennedy is clearly an important vote on this, having been the author of the case that kind of opened the door for marriage rights, the Lawrence case, and if one had to make a judgement about where he stood today, one would conclude that he was leaning towards knocking down DOMA.
