Reid schedules cloture vote on standalone DADT repeal for Saturday Dec 18

Daily KOS has breaking news Thursday night (Dec 16) that Harry Reid will bring up a cloture vote on standalone “don’t ask don’t tell” repeal vote on Saturday, along with Dream Act. DADT will be first. It takes 60 votes to pass cloture, then a simple majority to pass the bill.

On AC360, commentators still feared that the GOP could still play partisan politics, and force Obama to play multiple choice on what he gets, giving up DADT repeal.

Kerry Eleveld has a story in the Advocate here.
