In his State of the Union address last month, Obama vowed to end the policy that bars gays and lesbians who serve in the military from openly referring to their sexuality - commonly referred to as the 'Don't ask, Don't tell' policy.
CBS news have just run a poll to judge the response of their readers.
34% of Americans now support allowing homosexuals to serve openly in the military.
However, in the same poll -
51% of Americans now support allowing gays and lesbians to serve openly in the military.......
You may need to think about it for a minute - and then reflect that these are the same Americans who vote into power the most powerful world leader.
Just as well they weren't given the choice of voting on whether they thought 'friends of Dorothy' should be allowed to serve openly in the military.
