I can only assume by that you mean Clinton's "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" directive. Harry Truman had the same trouble when he ordered the full integration of the military. Both were right in extending Civil Rights. If those with so called 'traditional values' see the denial or restriction of Civil Rights as a traditional value then let them be alienated. They are in the wrong and trying to pacify them just to get their votes or not offend them is what delayed the end to slavery, women's suffrage, the Civil Rights movement and now full rights for the LGBT community. Those with reprehensible views should no longer be allowed to claim the moral high ground. They do not have it, no matter how twisted or convoluted the logic to such a claim. The Christian Taliban needs to awaken they are not in charge and never should have been.
