(CNN) - There it is. A call to end "don't ask, don't tell," framed in the promise enshrined in the Constitution, a new milestone of civil rights. It's not the end of this debate - not by a long shot - but our country has evolved a lot on this issue since Bill Clinton first raised it in 1993.
John McCain has already put out a written statement saying that he is opposed to doing away with Don't Ask Don't Tell. I think it's time to get the guys out of congress who are opposed to every American being created equal. They no longer serve a purpose.
Upholding civil rights is an American principle, and the time has come to end the misguided policy of DADT. All Americans should be given the opportunity to continue serving our country with honor.
he refuses to support gay marriage....so anything he says on the issue rings false.....
Its time to give all human being equal treatment.... after all God made them just the way they are...... not Republican's or Democrats or Libertarians etc.
Pkm if i took a shower with 20 army guys i do not want a gay looking at me and make a move on me
here! here! Way to go Mr. President!
A smart and bold move. Plus, it makes the military much more "fierce".
It was interesting to see how NONE of the military officers in attendance agreed with President Obama.
