Obama and Marriage Equality
Lesson: Once you are behind the curve historically -- there is no time that trying to catch up doesn't look exactly like what it is -- trying to catch up. Your friends will be very happy because they don't have to be embarrassed by your tardiness anymore. Your enemies will be mad at you because you are getting right when they were enjoying your error. The only thing to do is to try to catch up as soon as you can, do it with dignity, and hope that you give some space for other late-comers to catch up too.
