If Levin has any courage, just put it through and let it be voted NOW! Screw what the White House says.
If push comes to shove, let us see if Obama vetoes the bill? I doubt he would.
This is just posturing. Some of the politicians still see any action that might be in support of equal rights as being a liability.
What they forget is that the electorate has the memory capabilities of a gnat. Or in this case that a vast MAJORITY wants to see the ban aka DADT repealed.
Obama is turning out to be so hobbled by political posturing. He needs to step the hell up and be a real leader, not an academic.
