Senate gets a last pass at 'don't ask, don't tell'

The Senate is getting one more chance to vote on repealing the military's "don't ask, don't tell" policy before leaving for the year. The House has passed a stand alone bill to end the policy. The repeal was part of the defense authorization bill blocked by Republicans last week on procedural grounds, but supporters in the Senate say there might not be enough time left to get the repeal through.
