Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) does not see a political lift for President Obama in the imminent repeal of the Clinton-era policy banning gays from serving openly in the military.

“I think the people who are supportive of [repealing] 'Don’t ask, don’t tell’ were probably supportive of the president to begin with,” he told reporters in the Capitol.

“Most Americans, I think, hope it works out. I certainly do. I think it is going to be problematic and whatever problems it has, [Obama] owns,” Graham added.
