48. There is no easy out re: DADT. Walter Dellinger was on the Rachel Maddow Show making this case.
Edited on Thu Oct-14-10 08:59 PM by ClarkUSA
The Justice Dep't.'s orderly defenses of laws passed by Congress is constitutionally sound. Dellinger was Clinton's Acting Solicitor General. He's saying that it's wrong to allow a single district judge to overturn a law passed by Congress. He gave an example of a future Republican president finding one district judge to rule against HCR and deciding not to appeal. He also said that President Obama has done alot to move the repeal of DADT forward by making the military get on board, which is a big deal. Dellinger said that ultimately, Congress really needs to repeal DADT but that President Obama is doing a "delicate" dance to set the stage for that to happen.
