"I think it's okay, even though it's kind of unprecedented. It did not happen when it came to the inclusion of women; it did not come with the ending of discrimination against African Americans. I can understand the resentment, by the way, in the gay community, that this occurs now but not with those other efforts."

-- Senator Carl Levin (D-MI), the chairman of the Armed Services Committee, speaking on the recent military survey of the troops' feelings about the repeal of DADT
