Newsom praises possible end to ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ 

Mayor Gavin Newsom has praised President Barack Obama’s pledge to end the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy in his State of the Union speech.

As expected, the mayor said the next step for the nation is to forward gay marriage rights. But movement on “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,” is a start, Newsom said on MSNBC’s The Dylan Ratigan Show this afternoon.

Newsom told Ratigan that he’s heard U.S. Secretary of Defense Robert Gates might present something on the topic early next week.

In recent weeks, Newsom has become a frequent contributor to MSNBC.
