Peter Beinart argues in this morning's Washington Post that the culture wars are coming to a close. Some of the strongest evidence for his thesis: The petering out of stem cell research as a hot campaign issue. This year, there's only one ballot measure on stem cell research, which I've added to the guide.

State: Michigan

Issue: Prop. 2, which would repeal Michigan's ban on embryonic stem cell research.

Analysis: The predictable battle lines are drawn, as Michigan becomes the latest state to debate the ethics of stem cell research. Right now, Michigan has one of the nation's most stringent laws against stem cell research. Expect a close vote -- a similar measure passed in Missouri in 2006 with 51% of the vote.
