Suspense builds over State of the Union

Posted on 27 Jan 2010 at 1:35pm

The gay suspense continues to build over tonight’s State of the Union Address, which begins at 8 p.m. Dallas time. The question is, will President Barack Obama say anything about repealing “don’t ask, don’t tell,” and if so, what will he say? As Adam Bink notes at Open Left, if Obama merely states that he wants to repeal the 17-year-old ban on openly gay servicemembers, it would be nothing new and should be viewed as a huge disappointment. Instead, Obama needs to say when and how he plans to repeal DADT, and then actually do it. Chris Johnson of DCAgenda, formerly the Washington Blade, offers a nice primer. And then there’s this. Anyone hosting a gay watch party?
