Obama talks strategy on gays in the military & marriage equality

Philadelphia Gay News Publisher Mark Segal finally got his interview with Barack Obama. The Democratic nominee says he won't pull a George W. Bush and sneak a repeal of "don't ask, don't tell" into a signing statement. Obama also talks strategy for repealing the Orwellian named Defense of Marriage Act.

I think Obama's strategy is right. It's scary. I want him to jump up and down and scream that he'll ram equality down the throats of anyone who disagrees with him. That kind of response would certainly be emotionally satisfying, but it wouldn't bring about a lasting victory for us.

By the way, Segal also asked for an interview with John McCain, but (here's a shock) McCain declined.
