Today's Show: Will DADT Be Repealed This Year?

3:30pm EST - Last week, the president laid out his plans for the economy, health care and national security in his State Of The Union Address, and said he would "work with Congress and the military" to repeal 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell." But we've discussed on the show, and here on the blog, various reports that suggest pushback from the Pentagon and show some mixed messages on whether repeal will happen this year or there will be a "years-long" process. Joining us this afternoon is Dr. Nathanial Frank, Senior Research Fellow with the Palm Center and author of Unfriendly Fire: How The Gay Ban Undermines The Military And Weakens America, to give his opinion as to what he thinks will be talked about in tomorrow's hearings where Secretary Gates and Joint Chiefs Chairman Mullen will speak.
