So up into one of my news feeds pops this, which is a victory, don’t get me wrong,  but is a rather anti-climactic one.

Obama orders additional benefits for same-sex partners of executive branch employees

Seems rather staged to me, coming, as it does at the onset of Gay Pride Month.  Last year, when Secretary of State Clinton announced benefits for domestic partners, there was a transparency at work.  We knew of her meeting with an LGBT group from State early on in her tenure, and of her promise to study the situation.  Her announcement came at a propitious,  but also at a reasonable time, after her promised research and budgetary work could be completed.
