At a town hall meeting in Tampa today, an audience member said to President Obama, “Last night you talked about DADT. My question is, what are you doing now to put it in motion so that same-sex couples, homosexuals, are treated as equal citizens as the United States, i.e. same-sex marriage and 1000+ benefits that heterosexual couples enjoy after marriage?” Obama responded by totally evading the question and talking about benefits for the domestic partners of federal employees. You should definitely pay attention to how supportive the audience was of the young man’s question.
