    that he's looking for a solution to make things better while waiting for legislation.

    I do wonder though why the president couldn't help him with that.  He could issue an executive order very quickly that acted as a bridge.  Perhaps that is what they are going to do and Pres. Obama is just waiting for a recommendation from Gates and officers in the military who will actually have to implement it, and then will make it official by exec. order.

    I do hope that it applies to Lt. Dan Choi and reverses his discharge before it happens.  I'm pretty sure that a lot of people (like Murphy, Sestak) have gone to bat for Choi behind the scenes.  He's the one who really put DADT back into the spotlight and successfully attempted to force some action on it.
