Quote:WASHINGTON (RNN) - Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-NV, scheduled a vote on the Senate's version of a repeal of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" on Thursday, but a ticking clock could stand in the way of its passage.
If the Senate fails to pass the bill as written, without amendments, there is a very slim chance that there will be enough time to work out the compromises with the House before the end of the lame duck session.
If it doesn't pass now, hope dims that it will pass when Republicans gain control of the House in 2011. In a news release, the bill's co-sponsor, Sen. Joe Lieberman, I-CT, remained optimistic that the bill will pass.
"I am confident that we have more than 60 votes to end this law that discriminates against military service members based solely on their sexual orientation," Lieberman said.
Lets keep our fingers crossed
