Majority Whip Clyburn on DADT

Just now on MSNBC:

Q: And just one quick question. I know you were one of 77 House members who wrote to the president last summer on Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell. Senator Levin is suggesting there will be something in the State of the Union on this. Is he going to suggest repeal?

CLYBURN: I don’t have any idea what the president is going to do with that. The time has come for us to get rid of that policy. That policy is not doing our country any good. We’re trying to bring people together. We want people who want to serve our nation, especially in the armed services, to be treated with dignity and respect. And I do believe that policy needs to be visited very soon, hopefully – needs to be gotten rid of very soon.
