  •  It is over. (0+ / 0-)

    Lieberman objected to, and stopped, the amendment from going forward (according to this diary).  That means GOP didn't get this provision and the President's signature will end DADT.  Obama has indicated he will sign it so the fight to repeal DADT is over.

    •  It's not over, though it is a major victory. (0+ / 0-)

      Calling it over is like calling WWII over after the victory at Normandy (D-Day).  There is still quite a bit more work before DADT is repealed though it is mostly downhill from here.
