DADT Compromise Watered Down Too Much

What's the point to having a second vote from Congress? Either Congress votes for a repeal that gives the president and the Defense Department the time it needs to implement it correctly or it holds the vote after the report comes out. Gay Americans have pressed Congress to act now since our chances at getting the stupid law repealed dwindle after the Democrats lose their seats in Congress. U.S. Senator Robert Byrd (D-WV), though, is providing the Democrats too much cover by letting them tell their constituents that they have have fulfilled their vow to repeal "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" but then let them back out with the second vote that occurs after the November elections.
Sorry. No dice. One vote would do.
