No Time for a Holiday From History

By Hugh Hewitt

When Bill Clinton proposed allowing gays to serve in the military in 1993, the military and the Congress reacted quickly to stop his move and did so not because of homophobia but because of the needs of the service. Since then the issue has not been the subject of a Congressional vote.

Now Hillary Clinton is demanding the law be changed so that gays can serve openly. This tells us that Senator Clinton is indeed far to the left of the country's mainstream, and also indifferent to the opinions of the military she wants to lead. Suddenly we are back in the 90s, debating how to make the military an agent of social change rather than the best instrument for fighting and winning wars.

Senator Clinton is to be complimented for her candor, but as the curtain rises on her radical politics across this and many other issues, voters have got to ask themselves if the world will allow us another holiday from history like the one we took under her husband's tenure.
