Two questions about the term “lame-duck session”:
From dictionary: (formerly) the December to March session of those members of the U.S. Congress who were defeated for reelection the previous November.
SEN. JOHN MCCAIN (R), ARIZONA: I will not agree to have this bill go forward, and neither will I believe that 41 of my colleagues will either, because our economy is in the tank.
KAYE: So, will a vote go forward during the lame-duck session? That's a political question. For more on the policy, I spoke earlier with Pentagon general counsel Jeh Johnson, who co-authored this week's report on gays in the military.
