Rumors from ABC News:

Will President Obama announce new policy regarding the sexual orientation of people serving in the military during his State of the Union address Wednesday?

Sen. Carl Levin, who chairs the Armed Services Committee thinks so.

Levin told reporters today that he has delayed plans to hold Senate hearings to examine the current “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell” policy at the request of administration officials. Why would they want him to hold off? The officials Levin talked to said they expect the President will address the issue of homosexuals serving in the military during the State of the Union Address.

Could this be it—the fierce urgency of Wednesday?
