Lessons From Albany Come Home to D.C.

Maybe Obama took the hint:

I've said it other places, but I'm going to repeat it here: Obama is all about process, not so much about results. As to whether he's going to strong-arm anyone on this, I doubt it. He's done the bare minimum, and I suspect he thinks that's enough. I'd be delighted to be proven wrong, but I don't see him facing off against the Republicans in the House about gay civil rights.

It's a good first step, though.

I can hardly wait for the wailing from the right.
