DADT Final Repeal Vote Scheduled for 3pm Today!!

From CTV...
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid says the Senate will take a final vote Saturday afternoon on legislation that would overturn the U.S. military's ban on openly gay troops. 
The vote on ending the "don't ask, don't tell" policy is set for 3 p.m. (2000 GMT) before senators turn to a nuclear arms treaty with Russia. Passage would send the military measure to the White House.
Normally, after a cloture vote, there is a 30hr waiting period before the bill can again be brought up before the full Senate for a vote. Only the minority party can waive this 30hr waiting period, which they have. Thus the historical vote will happen in less than 2 hrs!!

Because the procedural vote went through...in my opinion there is no reason to worry that this final vote will not make DADT a thing of the past.
