Sharron Angle - Harry Reid debate: 'Don't ask, don't tell'
Angle: "The policies are under review. ... We shouldn't jump ahead of the military as Sen. Reid tried to do."
She said that in Nevada, more than 70% of voters have said a marriage should be between a man and a woman. And she agrees.
On Bush and Cheney supporting gay rights: "That is of course their personal opinion and prerogative. ... That's great."
Reid counters: "She doesn't understand what went on in Washington and the bill to do away with 'don't ask, don't tell.' The Senate legislation didn't say get rid of 'don't ask, don't tell,' but that a secretary of Defense would have to certify it would do no harm to our troops only after Department of Defense report came down."
That's backward, replies Angle. "The wrong way to make law. The review should come out first, and then the bill."
