Just in case you missed last night's CNN/YouTube debate where the Republican candidates were asked questons by regular citizens on topics from immigration to healthcare and of course the war in Iraq. I've got footage from one of the most interesting questions of the night from retired Brigadier Gen. Keith Kerr, a man who served the military for 43 years and who is now openly gay.

The candidates stated they all believed that allowing gays to serve openly would be bad for "unit cohesion" and the current policy has worked for years so there was no need to change it. I find it obsurd that Republicans and Americans who are in favor of DADT don't think gay and lesbian officers are capable of separating their professional and private lives.

Also take a moment and view the clip below to see the horrible position this policy puts gay and lesbian soldiers in. If you watched The Real World New Orleans a few years ago then you might remember gay cast member Danny and his military boyfriend Paul. Due to DADT Paul was never seen on the show but later left the military and came out publicly.

So, what's the problem? I hear you saying all this ying yang but haven't said anything profound about it. DADT is a compromise in my opinion, for military policy.
