As chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, it falls on Sen. Carl Levin’s shoulders to see if pushing a Don’t Ask Don’t Tell repeal through committee, and to a full floor vote, makes sense. And as the White House’s pointman on the repeal, Sen. Joe Lieberman is responsible for generating bipartisan support for the push. So what’s it say that neither Levin nor Lieberman think repealing DADT is even doable in the near future?
This is a tragedy of Greek proportions. Or to stick with tradition, do we actually need a third party to join the chorus of hopeless? Let’s toss Joe Solmonese’s hat in the ring, because really, he hasn’t believed in an actual DADT repeal in years.
