What's being called "a great moment" at Netroots Nation 2010: Dan Choi, expelled from the military within the past month for being gay, had his West Point ring handed to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. Reid promised to return it to Choi upon the repeal of Don't Ask, Don't Tell, prompting Choi to hop on stage and hug the man who was the subject of recent GetEQUAL protests.
I imagine it could be a very healing gesture. Provided DADT goes bye-bye very soon as promised.
President Obama's video appearance at the same confab could be seen as another olive branch to progressives.
