something about obama’s exasperated response to this question about gays in the military makes me realize the potential of having a non-boomer, almost gen-x president. from le politico:
“We’re having a ongoing debate in our culture about homosexuality,” Obama said. “I believe that gays and lesbians are entitled to the rights that every American enjoys and if they are able and willing to serve in our military then we should re-examine those policies that prevent them from serving.”
something about reading this speaks to the part of me that still cannot believe that sentiments like Obama’s are not common-sense presumptions.
