It is very possible we may well have a Republican majority in the Senate next year. Without this decision the survival of DADT, they don't have to fight the social fights in DC and can focus on fiscal issues?
Could it pose problems for Obama?
Does Obama appeal or not? If he decides not to, he’ll undercut Gates’s request for the Pentagon to complete its review of impact on military readiness/logistics...
If Obama does appeal, he’ll upset the left (primarily young voters who he needs to "get out and vote").
Anyone think Obama with divert and avoid decision until after the election?
All a game of politics, isn't it?
Another one of those wedge issues that both sides trot out in election years, to rile up the base, and ignore the rest of the time.

I heard that they are going to put a hold on that decision, so that congress can decide. You are right he is going to upset the left on this. He should leave it be. That is what they want ultimately, but they are trying to make everyone happy. The democrats are wimps, if the republicans wanted to do this they wouldn't care about the other side they would just do it. I can't stand that they are always trying to work with the other side. It wasted so much time.

Lets be honest , the other side is the conservative right, or this would have been one along time ago.
