McCain vs. McCain: Cindy Supports Allowing Gays To Serve Openly in Military

Posted By on Fri, Nov 12, 2010 at 11:07 AM

Cindy McCain takes on her own hubby on the topic of Don't Ask, Don't Tell. Details here.

The New York Times called on McCain to back down on his opposition to repealing Don't Ask, Don't Tell yesterday:


Mr. McCain, who previously expressed support for repeal providing that it had the military leadership’s approval, should listen. His clout could be decisive. Failure to enact repeal would be a personal rebuff to troops now serving in two wars. It would also fly in the face of the public’s overwhelming support of repeal.

Republicans narrowly prevailed in filibustering “don’t ask” in September. A filibuster in the lame-duck session would run out the clock and send the issue to likely oblivion in the incoming Republican-controlled House. Justice demands a vote.

Senator McCain has a chance to do right by the military and country he championed as a war hero. He should find a reasonable way to forgo a filibuster and end this grave injustice.
