McCain Flips on "Don't Ask, Don't Tell"

"The day that the leadership of the military comes to me and says, Senator, we ought to change the policy, then I think we ought to consider seriously changing it because those leaders in the military are the ones we give the responsibility to."

-- Sen. John McCain, in an interview on Hardball in 2006, about the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy.

"At this moment of immense hardship for our armed services, we should not be seeking to overturn the Don't Ask, Don't Tell policy."

-- McCain, quoted by NBC News earlier today, after the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs recommended changing the policy.
