Obama to repeal Don’t Ask Don’t Tell?

January 15th, 2009 · No Comments · Politics

Andrew Sullivan thinks he will (though his current link seems to have no actual information related to DADT).

Here’s hoping it proves true.

Given that the apocalyptic state of the economy is essentially torpedoing most of his major domestic plans and that pragmatism has forced him into a defensive posture on things like Gitmo and time tables for pulling out of Iraq, this would be a very nice thing to see early from the Obama administration. His supporters can use a bit of reassurance at this point and this is the sort of marquee, basic human rights goodness that can help to soften the growing sense that MOST of the change that was coming is no longer affordable or practical.
