    That is the result of the cloture vote.

    Not in my heart of hearts!

    I'm only opposed to the violence and railroading that I fear gays will have to face as a result of DADT being officially repealed. For gays to demonstrate openly gay behavior in public, like on an aircraft carrier, will spell pure trouble. I think! I hope that I'm wrong!

    PS.

    I don't want this measure to diffract the military in any way...

    more fyi, a bit of bad news, this time, sorry

    but i know it won't bring you down

    it looks like lindsey means it, he'll kill start

    START struggling to get to finish line - Glenn Thrush and Shira Toeplitz - POLITICO.com

    meaning---the PRICE for dadt may ultimately turn out to be start, obama's "top priority"

    lindsey was the 67th, ie, the last vote to move start to debate

    that is, if he bolts, all by himself, the treaty will die (for now)

    politico surprisingly sees start as unlikely to be brought up after january

    if so, it would amount to a monumental misplay, as the votes, should the pact proceed properly, are certainly there

    lindsey on face the nation this morning showed his cards---his position is that reid's resort to all these political parleys has rather robbed the solons their opportunity to advise and consent on foreign affairs

    it really does look like start is all graham's---he can pass it, he can kill it

    recall his obama body blows as gop point man the last 2 years on immigration and energy

    stay up, enjoy your little pride parade

    All we need to do is get Navy Pride to say START is dead, and that will pretty much ensure that it passes.

    But seriously, it has nothing to do with DADT. McCain has a personal animosity to Obama just as he had a personal animosity to Bush. If Reid had put START first, then chances are that neither DADT nor START would have passed.
