Didn't see that coming

So the Federal Court has declared the Defense of Marriage Act unconstitutional.  Show of hands from anyone who actually thought it would turn out otherwise.  This, like so much of Bill Clinton's legacy, was merely shadows dancing on the air.  Even then, folks new you couldn't have something that said a person could be married in one state, while at the same time not be married in another.  Of course there were no doubt other problems with it, since its premise was so fundamentally flawed.

But as usual, it gave Clinton that chance to appeal to everyone while doing nothing.  It's worth noting that the terrors and problems of the last ten years, for the most part had their roots in the 90s.  When we were told all was well, all was grand, all was perfect (so keep running up your charge cards making the economy look good), the seeds of America's woes were already taking root.  This latest is simply one more example of what has to be America's most superficial presidency in history.
