Some historians say that the racial integration of U.S. military forces helped pave the way for the broader Civil Rights movement. Could the end of the military’s ban on LGBT soldiers have a similar effect?

It’s worth noting that in the wake of the passage of the the “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell” repeal both President Obama and Vice President Joe Biden have signaled greater openness to the idea of marriage equality.

First Obama said that his view on the subject is “constantly evolving.”

And today, Biden called same-sex marriage “inevitable.”
