WASHINGTON (AP) -- The Senate is headed toward a landmark vote Saturday on legislation that would let gays serve openly in the military.
The vote will test waning opposition among Republicans and put Democrats within striking distance of overturning "don't ask, don't tell."
Passage would be a historic victory for President Barack Obama, who made repeal of the 17-year-old law a campaign promise in 2008. It also would be a political win for congressional Democrats who have struggled repeatedly in the final hours of the lame-duck session to overcome Republican objections.
