"The question for President Obama now is: does he want to mark this issue in the failure column as President Clinton was forced to do, or does he want to deliver on the change we were promised? It is inconceivable that the Secretary of Defense would so blatantly undermine the Commander-in-Chief's policy commitment and now the country looks to the President to exert his authority and leadership. If the President is going to fulfill his pledge to the American people it is essential that he address this issue."

-- HRC President Joe Solmonese in an e-mail message to members. Solmonese promised the org's donors a few months ago that Don't Ask Don't Tell would be repealed this year.
