Quote of the Day, from Obama speech on the 40th anniversary of the Stonewall protests

Andrew Sullivan has the full speech that Obama gave today to mark the 40th anniversary of Stonewall. While it is a very good speech, and it shows you the longer term perspective of Obama, I thought this passage was great and it reminds me of what Martin Luther King used to complain about:

“It’s not for me to tell you to be patient, any more than it was for others to counsel patience to African Americans who were petitioning for equal rights a half century ago.”
