“I have my doubts. He has so many other things on his plate. He needs to establish a proven track record on the policies he’s already implemented before he branches out into gays and the military. Of course, I hope he’s successful in repealing the policy.”

“Yes. If anyone can get it done, he would be the guy. His popularity will help sway people to his point of view. He’s very good at bringing human beings together. We haven’t had such an articulate and diplomatic president since Kennedy.”

“No, probably not. Most of our country is conservative. We have two wars going on and an economy in crisis. So it can’t be his biggest priority, even if he wants it to happen. Maybe if he’s re-elected he’ll be able to get it done in his second term.”

“Yes. Barack Obama is a uniter, not a divider. He’s very well-spoken. But he really doesn’t have to say much. It’s so obvious. Gays don’t join the military to get laid. They risk their lives to protect our country, just like any other military person.”
