Blue dog democrat Joe Manchin said Saturday that he regretted voting against the repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell. Joe.My.God reports:
In December 2010, Manchin broke with Democrats and cast a vote against a procedural motion to advance “don’t ask, don’t tell” repeal legislation. When the Senate voted to repeal the “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy later that month, Manchin skipped the vote to attend a “holiday gathering.” “That was the wrong vote,” Manchin said at a Saturday breakfast hosted by National Journal and The Atlantic, which also featured MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow. “Today I would vote the other way.”
Manchin is one of the three remaining Senate Democrats who is not endorse marriage equality, and just recently reiterated his support for DOMA. So he should be regretting that decision in about, what, three more years?
