BREAKING NEWS: Senate votes 63-33 to move forward with DADT vote

It wasn't "the vote" -- it was the vote-to-have-the-vote. But 63-33 the Senate just agreed to move forward and vote on the DADT bill the House has already passed.

Here's what Joe Lieberman said when introducing the cloture vote:"
Removing a legalized form of discrimination from our books is not a liberal or a conservative idea, a Republican or Democratic idea -- it's an American idea consistent with American values. We've come to the point in our history, I hope when neither race nor religion, ethnicity nor sexual orientation should deprive Americans from serving our country."
And let the people say, AMEN!
