To ditch or not to ditch. That's the debate in which U.S. Sen. Mark Udall asserts that the Pentagon's "Don't Ask Don't Tell" policy should be sent packing.
The policy, which allows gays and lesbians to serve in the military as long as they keep their sexuality a secret, has been on a roller-coaster ride since a federal judge recently issued a nationwide injunction stopping its enforcement. That order has been stayed, pending appeal.
Advocate.com interviewed Udall about what it will take to get the measure passed as a part of the National Defense Authorization Act.
Meanwhile, closer to home, we'll be interested to see whether Republican state Rep. Larry Liston, elected Nov. 2 to his fourth and final term in the Colorado House, will come through on gay and lesbian rights after One Colorado, a LGBT advocacy group, endorsed him over Democrat Jan Tanner.
One Colorado's Brad Clark said in September Liston "pledged support and commitment on a number of LGBT issues."
