"Many paths to repeal of Don't Ask, Don't Tell have been charted and started simultaneously. For those service members who are proudly serving our country - but serving silently - and for those who have already been discharged, the process is entirely too slow.

"If the Obama administration is going to appeal this decision to higher courts, then we need to hear the President say that he believes DADT is unconstitutional. We need to hear it in a context of a plan that includes several back-ups, especially if Sen. McCain is serious about his churlish and misguided threat of another filibuster in the lame duck session."

-- National Stonewall Democrats Executive Director Michael Mitchell in a statement emailed to the press
