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.
