Rachel Maddow challenged President Obama, urging him to “[stand] up for what is right” on Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell. Maddow made the appeal personal, highlighting three soldiers “whose military careers are being ended because of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.”

“As we take our time winding down this policy that everyone says will be ending, as we shamble toward justice, we as a country are continuing to put the lives of these
individuals through the meat grinder every day,” she said. “Why are we kicking people out now, in the meantime, while we are waiting for the views of the commander-in-chief and the defense secretary and the chairman of the joint chiefs-of-staff to be implemented?”

Maddow said that the reason Obama isn’t stopping enforcement of DADT now is because “that would take some political capital, that would take some guts.”
