That's nice. Honestly though, I don't really see this as that big of a deal. Sure it pushes progress further for "gay rights" but, what right does this have to deal with? I really just don't care, and neither should anyone else. The fact that he got in though, shows that congress doesn't give a rats ass about his orientation, which is good. Cause, no one should.
Honestly though, congress should not be worrying about ANYTHING else but the debt ceiling deal (and therelackof) right now. If this took more then an hour to take care of, then it should have been put off for a week or two. It's called priorties.
