Don't Ask, Don't Tell: Obama Speaks

The Advocate interviews President Barack Obama on the repeal of Don't Ask, Don't Tell and gay marriage - his first interview with the gay media.
On same-sex marriage he says his “attitudes are evolving.”
“Like a lot of people, I'm wrestling with this. I've wrestled with the fact that marriage traditionally has had a different connotation. But I also have a lot of very close friends who are married gay or lesbian couples.”
Fagburn was actually quite moved by hearing Obama speaking about this in the White House today - if nothing else he does give good rhetoric.
Can't see why anyone would want to join the US military myself - unless they're going to do a Bradley Manning (allegedly).
But anyway... Fagburn is looking forward to the future when we think how daft it was that we even had these debates.
