Will Justice Kennedy wimp out?

Yesterday's activities at the Supreme Court seemed to revolve around Justice Anthony Kennedy. We know how the others will vote; Kennedy's the wild card. 

Though many reporters seem to think he'll toss the case aside for lack of standing, or because he is hesitant to toss "2,000 years of history or more", I prefer to focus on the following remarks made by Kennedy:
"There are some 40,000 children in California, according to the Red Brief, that live with same-sex parents, and they want their parents to have full recognition and full status.
"The voice of those children is important in this case, don't you think?"
Yes, it is. And he understands that. It's our only hope.
