The Hope Diet

Jennifer Vanasco is disappointed that Obama hasn't advocated for Illinois's civil unions bill:

Insiders tell us that he will keep his promises. They tell us to be patient. They tell us to wait. Maybe they're right. Maybe not. Maybe the Obama Administration really is working like crazy behind the scenes to dismantle DOMA and Don’t Ask, to support the Employment NonDiscrimination Act and the Uniting American Families Act. Maybe they're just hoping if they placate us enough, we’ll go away.

All we know for sure when it comes to this Administration is that hope is not enough. Promises of "change" are not enough. We supported Obama with our dollars and our labor, and it is time he supports us in return. But until he does, the good people of Illinois like good people all over the country have to wait for their rights.
