Indecisive Democrats Struggle to Move Forward

Bill Clark/Roll Call

As a result, Reid has been trying to juggle the myriad requests of individual Senators. Sen. Joe Lieberman (ID-Conn.) called on Reid to carve out time to debate the repeal of “don’t ask, don’t tell” military policy and the defense authorization bill.

Sen. Bob Menendez (D-N.J.) hailed Reid’s plan to bring the immigration reform measure called the DREAM Act to the floor, and Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.) said a vote to end secret holds is on her wish list.

“I think this is a discussion that goes beyond today,” retiring Sen. Byron Dorgan (D-N.D.) said. “It’s the right time to do this, it’s a good thing to do and Sen. Reid wants to have the caucus involved in the development of a plan forward.”
