    Gays have to have the balls to NOT vote Democratic and let them not get reelected once so they appreciate how much our support matters to them.

    Despite the hysteria of the blogosphere, this is the clearest report I've read yet in that it describes the way political work actually happens in the US. If we want DOMA repealed or DADT, it will have to be forced through the House and Senate so it gets to Obama's desk. THEN, we can pressure him.

    What has to happen to make it so such a bill can be forced through the House and Senate is a PR program that makes it safe in their district for those folks to pass such a bill.
