  1. He clearly has the experience and the ability to do the job – so I wish him well.

    His orientation should be irrelevant.

    That said, it is good to see a visible gay man being given a very senior role in the US military.

    Progress!

      1. Relevance?

  2. Bravo Obama. In a country where so many people will use appointments such as this as a reason not to vote for you – you do the right thing and appoint on merit. Bravo!

    He looks so young… How old is he? (Maybe in my age group…)

  4. Obama just gets better and better. As Stu says, Fanning’s orientation is irrelevant and this appointment shows that Obama thinks so too.

      conceivabvly there is a secondary motive for doing this appt.

      the right wing freakos will have a public fit, and make the people in the middle understand whats happened to the Repubs .

      and not vote for them.
