Lonely Man Barack Obama is looking to delay any action on “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell” until 2010. He says he wants to build consensus and consult with military leaders first.
No matter how you feel about the policy, this is good. (I oppose the policy.) If you support the policy, you don’t want to see it change. If you oppose it, you don’t want to see a retread of the Clinton mistakes; Obama should do this in a measured and diplomatic manner.
Looks like Obama has learned something from the Clinton years.
Which is easy, I guess — since all those Clinton people are in his White House now, telling Obama about their previous mistakes firsthand.
