    without the "old guard" making all sorts of difficulty during the implementation. There are better chances of that if some of the irrational fears of this "old guard" subside a bit. On the other hand, it slows down the process and people suffer in the mean time. Another case of choosing between bad and bad.

      Remember, Obama doesn't want to make things even worse with some compromise that seems good in theory, but stinks in practice, which is what DADT was.  And Clinton agreed to DADT only after pissing the old guard because he wanted to completely get rid of the "no gays" policy.
