DADT passes the Senate 65-31

Now the Pentagon can move ahead with plans to end this stupid policy. But LGBT servicemembers can't leave the closet just yet. NY Times story here.

But the Senate is still broken. B efore the DADT vote, the DREAM act got 55 votes, in the modern Senate, but that isn't enough to move it ahead. This act would give young people who grew up with illegal status a path to citizenship through the military.
