As noted below, Majority Leader Harry Reid wrote to Obama today telling him to get involved in the effort to repeal Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell. My sense is that the Majority Leader wouldn’t be writing a letter to Obama if he thought Obama was involved or had any intention of engaging. Anyway, the White House responded:
The President appreciates the Majority Leader’s letter and looks forward to working with him and other members of Congress as they move towards a legislative repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.
This sounds like the same pablum the White House has been sending out on DADT for months, actually since the election. Before that, they were all gung-ho. But, could someone at the White House have feigned interest or enthusiasm?
