    DADT cloture passes

    Endgame: DADT cloture vote passes, 63-33; Update: Obama cheers « Hot Air

    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.

    Re: DADT cloture passes

    Its all a procedural matter at this point. Ending the Republican filibuster ensured that the vote to end DADT will pass.
    Congress acknowledged that it doesn't matter WHO you love in this country....as long as you love your country. A victory for freedom and justice loving Americans.

    Sounds like a lot more "Ayes" than "Nos" though.

    Re: DADT cloture passes

    From Sen. Levin's comments on DADT today:

    I am here because of Staff Sgt. Eric Alva, the first ground-unit casualty of the war in Iraq. The first casualty in the war in Iraq was a gay soldier. The mine that took off his right leg didn’t give a darn whether he was gay or straight. We shouldn’t either.
