Many liberals have long condemned the exclusion of gays from military service, but it will take true conservatives to get it done. President Bill Clinton's political pragmatism produced the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy as a compromise solution. It is draconian, indefensible, and just plain dumb. It should end. President Barack Obama is another one who talks out of both sides of his mouth. As a candidate, he took no chances and expressed opposition to gay marriage. I did not find him credible. The gay community's decision to overlook the rejection evinced its own understanding that it was voiced with a wink and nod.
