Harry Reid and Dan Choi at NN 2010

HARRY REID AND DAN CHOI AT NN 2010…. If you missed it, this was one of the more important and memorable moments from this year’s Netroots Nation conference.

I don’t doubt Harry Reid’s sincerity on this for a second, and if he can get this done, I believe he will.

But time’s running out, and if DADT repeal doesn’t get finished this year, it may not happen for a very long time.
