Many gay conservatives pounced on Obama's choice as proof that he's Clinton redux, totally uncommitted and ready to ditch gays to serve his own interests. That could be correct. But another interpretation is also plausible: Obama is doing exactly what many gay conservatives have been urging gay rights advocates to do. Without actually giving any ground on policy, he's reaching out to people who disagree with him.

-- law professor Dale Carpenter on the "smart politics" of President Obama choosing Rick Warren to deliver the invocation at the inauguration.
