Senator Centerfold Takes a Lifeline

by digby

It looks like my cynicism may have gotten the best of me and they may get 60 votes for the repeal of DADT after all. Greg Sargent had it right when he said that Gates had offered a lifeline yesterday, and it looks like Scott Brown has taken it.(Dday has the whip count which is still fluid -- but very possible.)

There are questions about implementation which may make this whole thing less than meets the eye, but if they pass it, it really is the end of this absurd policy for all intents and purposes.

Update: Ooops. He forgot to check with Mitch, I guess. He now says he won't vote for it until the "tax cut issue" is resolved.
