Pelosi: Will get DADT repeal done



House Speaker Nancy Pelosi says she has an "army of allies" ready to pass a DADT repeal in the House if Republicans don't prevent a stand-alone vote on repeal in the Senate. Big if and time is short. Pelosi's army in Arkansas is likely to be an Army of one — Vietnam veteran Vic Snyder.

And here's another issue where a Republican filibuster likely will defeat legislation with popular support — the DREAM Act to provide a citizenship path through military service or education for long-time residents who came to the U.S. before they were 16. Again: Vic Snyder soloed in Arkansas House support.

Somebody print the bumper stickers now: We Miss Vic Snyder.
