Episode 101 – Don’t Ask Don’t Tell and Election Predictions

In this episode, Jeff and Glenn welcome Emily Sussman of the Service Members Legal Defense Network, which provides free legal counsel to service members being investigated under the Don’t Ask Don’t Tell policy. With so much changing in regard to the policy, including the pending 9th Circuit Review, we take a deeper look at this issue and what people like Emily do to bring relief to those serving in the military. At the 13:15 mark, Jeff and Glenn tackle their election predictions, forecasting a House GOP takeover, taking a look at key Governor’s races in Florida, Ohio and Illinois, and analyzing a few key Senate races. Jeff and Glenn explain how Democrats would have been better off taking on issues like immigration reform and the Don’t Ask Don’t Tell repeal, and run strongly behind health care reform. Jeff shows how doing so could lead to more comfortable margins for Democrats in key states like Colorado. They also urge listeners to watch Connecticut and West Virginia, two key states in the Republicans’ hope to take the Senate.
