President Obama said, “I’m here with you in that fight,” but as Joe at Americablog notes, Obama acknowledged that there are many who believe progress hasn’t come far enough.  He said he’d end “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell.”  But there was no timeline for change.

When we look back we’ll see a time when discrimination ended in the workplace and the battlefield. We’ll also see a time when same-sex couples are recognized as equal. I guess we can look back on January 19, 2017.


But at least Obama acknowledged the fight; at least he’s appointed many gays to his administration. Now it’s time to get beyond “least.”
