Judge Virginia Phillips isn't going to allow the Pentagon to reinstate "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" while the Obama administration appeals her recent ruling against the policy, which she declared unconstitutional in September. Because she wants an Advocate cover, bad.
I have mixed feelings about this. I want DADT gone but I think it needs to happen via the courts so it is officially over instead of one judge deciding to make the choice themself. Honestly, especially so close to election day, they should be working WITH Obama and not deciding they can overrule him for whatever reason. This needs to go through the official process so it's legit. Obama is trying but so often his hands are tied and this hurts him and DADT more than it helps them. I respect him for wanting to go through this legally and properly. Even though it isn't as popular
