"I fully support the Don't Ask, Don't Tell Repeal Act of 2010 and value the service of all those who fight for our country. I know firsthand the profound sacrifice our service members and their families make, and if confirmed as Secretary of Defense, I will do everything possible to the extent permissible under current law to provide equal benefits to the families of all our service members."

-- Wannabe Defense Secretary (and former Republican Senator) Chuck Hagel reaffirming his support for gay and lesbian troops in a letter to Senator Barbara Boxer. Hagel's previous anti-gay statements have been a major stumbling block to his upcoming confirmation.
