Charlie Crist supports compromise DADT language

This is interesting for a variety of reasons, that go beyond the Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell policy itself. Crist, like Lindsey Graham has had to face longtime rumors that he’s gay. So, siding with a compromise that is perceived as pro-gay poses either a risk, or an opportunity, for any politician, depending who exactly he’s trying to woo. Crist seems to think being pro-gay woos him the votes he needs to win the Senate seat in Florida. So much so, that he’s willing to flip-flop on his previous opposition to changing the current policy.
