President Obama told a gay civil rights group tonight that he still intends to end the don't-ask-don't-tell policy for gays serving in the military. When? He's not saying when or how and acknowledged impatience at delivery on some campaign promises.
He expressed strong support for the Human Rights Campaign agenda -- ending discrimination against gays, lesbians, bisexuals and transgender people -- but stopped short of laying out a detailed plan for how to get there.
"My expectation is that when you look back on these years you will look back and see a time when we put a stop against discrimination ... whether in the office or the battlefield," Obama said.
