Behind the Scenes Video: Signing Repeal of Don't Ask Don't Tell
Posted by Jesse Lee

At the signing of the bill to repeal of "Don't Ask Don't Tell" last week, the sense of history and enthusiasm was palpable throughout the audience. While we were there we had a chance to talk to Captain Jonathan Hopkins, who was discharged under the policy, as well as Rep. Patrick Murphy who led the charge in the House of Representatives, and Melody Barnes who played an integral role here at the White House. The video gives a glimpse of what it was like there:

1. Thanks for this. Many said Obama was not a fighter for this. Murphy said otherwise.
A hero himself for this great cause. Thanks again for a great vid.
