The Tenth Amendment

Liberals have long dismissed the idea of states' rights as inherently reactionary and even bigoted. I wonder how how they'll think about states' rights after the decision striking down DOMA under the 10th Amendment.

More generally, many people talk as though repealing the 10th Amendment would allow Congress to shove reactionary local leadership out of the way and do all sorts of wonderful progressive things. How has that worked out for the District of Columbia?
