Senate Preliminary Victory: 63-33
Wow! Earlier today, the Senate voted, 63-33, to end debate or something on the stand-alone repeal of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell."
Final vote is scheduled for 3:00 p.m. today.
Of course, once the President signs the legislation, there are still various certifications, followed by a 60-day waiting period, before "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" is officially gone and off the books forever. SLDN insists that this be accomplished in the first quarter of 2011.
This is amazing. When our national civilian political leadership listens to real people, and does the right thing, it really helps to restore our faith in America.
