    NYTimes;

    WASHINGTON – President Obama on Thursday ordered his health secretary to issue new rules aimed at granting hospital visitation rights to same-sex partners, and making it easier for gays and lesbians to make medical decisions on behalf of their partners.

    The White House announced the rule changes in a memorandum released Thursday night. In it, the president said the new rules will affect any hospital that participates in Medicare or Medicaid, the government programs to cover the elderly and the poor.

    I had become a bit disappointed with Obama this winter but little by little I see him delivering on many of the hopes that the people who worked so hard to elect him held. Nuclear proliferation, health care, environmental regulations, appointments....methodically, pragmatically and tenaciously and often with little concern for his own political future he is moving the nation forward in positive ways....he just may turn out to be a really great leader after all....
