Watch: Joe Lieberman Disagrees with McCain’s Bigotry-Based Opposition to ‘DADT’ Repeal


Andrea Mitchell plays a bit of John McCain siding with service members who object to serving alongside gay people in today's Senate hearings on DADT.

Says McCain: "We send these young people into combat. We think they're mature enough to fight and die. I think they're mature enough to make a judgment on who they want to serve with and the impact on their battle effectiveness."

Lieberman responds:

"It's not acceptable in our country to judge people based on their...sexual orientation."
