Credit to Hillary Cinton

She didn't end up President, but we can definitely agree she's got more guts than all of the rest of them.
The State Department will offer equal benefits and protections to same-sex partners of American diplomats, according to an internal memorandum Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton sent last week to an association of gay and lesbian Foreign Service officers.

On the other hand, I guess you could take the more cynical view that with the Obama administration being pressed hard by GLBT, this is a relatively low profile, low political cost way to quiet them down. (The policy is announced, but no implementation date.)

However, there are other possible payoffs and Clinton jumped up and took it. Let's give Hillary Clinton a picture for being great.
