Lieberman to Take on DADT?

Joe Lieberman, liberal hero? According to The Advocate, the White House is in talks with Lieberman about repealing Don’t Ask Don’t Tell—a policy Lieberman has opposed since it was first proposed in 1993. The White House is looking for a senator to “carry” the bill, preferably with bipartisan support. That makes Lieberman a prime target—he sits on the Senate Armed Services Committee and is friendly with the Republican senators from Maine, who might cosponsor the bill.
