DNC calls to repeal ‘Don’t ask, don’t tell’

It's been a historic time at the Democratic National Convention in Denver.

For the first time since the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" law was implemented in 1993, a major political party adopted a platform that calls for the replacement of the law with a non-discrimination policy.

This accomplishment has largely gone unnoticed during the convention excitement, but it is a moment too important to be ignored.

The Democratic National Committee knows what we know: that "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" doesn't work.
At a time when our military has a desperate shortage of troops and our national security is still at risk, our country should not be discriminating against lesbian, gay and bisexual service members.

I'm proud of the Democratic National Committee for adopting this bold platform position, and I hope the Republican Party adopts a similar policy position.
