The Beginning Of Joe Solmonese’s Victory Lap

Ooh, boy, you know Joe Solmonese is busting out his best Ferragamos for Wednesday’s Don’t Ask Don’t Tell repeal signing! This man put his reputation on the line by promising the law would die by the end of the year, and while the Congress-backed “repeal” isn’t actually the death of the law (Gates and Mullen still have to sign off on it), I guess this means he did it? So he can keep his job? I haven’t attempted to confirm it, but I’m guessing Solmonese — who was gunning for an Obama administration job — will be standing behind the president’s desk when that pen hits paper.
