    The vote on the bill itself will come at 3 p.m., but that’s a formality. The roll: Six Republicans — Brown, Collins, Kirk(!), Murkowski, Snowe, and Voinovich — joined 57 Democrats to push it through.

    DADT is soon to be dead. Chalk one up for the good guys!....for America and American values. America has sent a message today to the bigots of this country that they will not be tolerated.
    And, that's really what it's all about. Why am I not surprised to see that comment in the OP of the, "DADT is dead", thread.

    Cross your fingers and hope that this works, because it can be re-instated in a heart beat. Another public opinion poll, another Pentagon study, both with opposite results of recent polls and studies. So, let us hope that this doesn't boil to to, "in yo' face, you ****in' bigots". If it's not, then this will turn out to be the worst thing that ever happened to gay service members.

    I hope it goes off without a hitch and we maintain the finest military force in history, that we've had for nearly 235 years.

    It should be a victory for our armed forces. Anything else and it was a waste of time.

    Japanese are weird too, so they may not be the best country to use as an example.
