This played out exactly as everyone expected it. It was a big political circus meant to use DADT as a wedge issue before the election. The next question will be the December study. I'm sure Conservatives are praying that the study holds to their views. If not, then with 75% of Americans wanting to see DADT repealed and a federal court ruling it unconstitutional, the GOP is going to have a hot potato in their hands. McCain has already gone from leading the charge on this issue to sitting on the fence. His opinion will likely be based on what the December study finds.
