Video: There's that purple tie we were looking for...

by Jeremy Hooper

A good move from the President:

Sincere, direct, important. Okay, so let's talk. Ways it could get better over night:

- Presidential support for full, unqualified marriage equality.

- The administration following Ted Olson's advice on DADT repeal/appeal: "It would be appropriate for them to say 'the law has been deemed unconstitutional, we are not going to seek further review of that.'"

- Making ENDA a priority.

- Subjectively standing opposed to faith-based discrimination when it stymies LGBT people's civil rights, and not acting as if these conversations are two-sided, equally-footed, doubly-merited "agree to disagree" scenarios.

- Letting gay people borrow Air Force One for our honeymoons.


Okay, okay -- we'll settle for four of the five. Someone other than Olson can provide the DADT advice, if that's the presidential prerogative.
