The military remains the great equalizer. Just like we did after President Truman desegregated the military, we'll someday look back and wonder what took Washington so long to fix it.
Remember the quote that is attributed to Clint Eastwood:
The more insecure a man is, the more likely he is to have extreme prejudices.
Hopefully if things go smoothly in implementation, we will be having no more protests like this one:

WASHINGTON - NOVEMBER 15: Members of the U.S. Park Police arrest gay rights activist and former Army Lt. Dan Choi, along with other activists, who has handcuffed himself to the fence of the White House during a protest November 15, 2010 in Washington, DC. The activists called on the Obama Administration and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to keep their promises on repealing the 'Don�t Ask, Don�t Tell' policy, which prevents gay people from serving openly, during the lame-duck session of the Congress.
