Will 'DADT Repeal' survive the U.S. Senate

The U.S. Senate Armed Services Committee and the full U.S. House of Representatives both voted to repeal the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" ban on open gays in the military May 27, 2010.

The vote in the Senate committee was 16-12. The vote in the House was 234-194. In the House, only five Republicans voted for repeal and only 26 Democrats voted against it.

A full Senate vote is expected in late June or early July.
Prediction some Republican Senators will maintain that military unit moral is disrupted, filibuster and block the Bill.
We may have to take a page from our Grandfathers WWII manual, -> Separate Regiments.
NOT Separate Regiments for the LGBT service members, Separate Regiments for the Fellas who's moral fails!
Your Predictions welcome, please comment below.

Don't Ask, Don't Tell
During his State of the Union address, President Obama pledged to repeal "Don't Ask, Don't Tell." Now, we have a chance to help make good on that promise.
The House of Representatives and the Senate Armed Services Committee have already voted in favor of repeal, and debate in the Senate will soon start. But some Republicans have already announced their plans to block the repeal.
We can defeat those who'd stand in the way of history. But we must show our senators that Americans -- in every state -- overwhelmingly support repeal.
Join the President's pledge to repeal "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" today.

I proudly stand with the President for the repeal of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell."
