The Hill reports that John McCain, the Senate's lead opponent of repealing Don't Ask, Don't Tell, will work to "minimize" repeal's harmful effects on the military: 

"I think I have to do everything I can to make sure that the impact on the morale, retention, recruitment and battle effectiveness of the military is minimized as much as possible," McCain said on Fox Business. "It is a law and I have to do whatever I can to help the men and women who are serving, particularly in combat, cope with this new situation. I will do everything I can to make it work."
