The Daily Quote

"Secretary Gates is pleased that the House of Representatives has voted to repeal the ‘Don't Ask, Don't Tell’ law. He encourages the Senate to pass the legislation this session, enabling the Department of Defense to carefully and responsibly manage a change in this policy instead of risking an abrupt change resulting from a decision in the courts."

- Geoff Morrell, Pentagon Press Secretary, 12/15/2010
