President Bill Clinton’s compromise for LGBT persons serving in the armed forces has officially ended under President Barack Obama’s watch. For some reason, I don’t recall the word “cave” or “weak” splashed across the headlines when Clinton was tackling this issue back in ’93. Or maybe I wasn’t paying attention. Or maybe Al Gore hadn’t finished inventing the internet. There was no Huffington Post in those days :). I suppose the Obama administration has now embraced the concept of “spiking the ball.” (see video) Bottom line: IT’S OVER! But the work continues.
