Obama to end "Don't Ask, Don't Tell"

If this actually happens, maybe he does deserve that Nobel prize.

Quote:
U.S. President Barack Obama pledged to end the ban on homosexuals serving openly in the military in a speech Saturday, but acknowledged to a cheering crowd that the policy changes he promised on the campaign trail are not coming as quickly as they expected.

"I will end 'don't ask-don't tell,"' Mr. Obama said at the annual dinner of the Human Rights Campaign, a gay civil rights advocacy group. Obama reaffirmed his commitment to end the ban, but did not give a timetable or the specifics that some activists have called for.

This is the left-wing equivalent of republican governors forcing women at abortion clinics to receive pamphlets.

He's throwing a bone to his base, so that they can believe he achieved "something".

I'm not saying this is completely irrelevant, but it should be seen as what it is - a bone. It doesn't really affect the distribution of power.
