Obama and DADT

At several fundraising events last spring, President Obama found himself the target of hecklers yelling over “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell”.

 Overturning the military’s policy on gays openly serving was an early campaign promise of candidate Obama. And with his left flank pushing for action, Obama made it part of January’s State of the Union address.

 But progress was slow. And as even Obama called for Congress to repeal the law, activists complained Washington wasn’t moving fast enough.
