WASHINGTON - SEPTEMBER 21: Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) (R) and U.S. Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) (L) walk up to speak to reporters before going to vote on cloture for the defense authorization bill September 21, 2010 in Washington, DC. The Senate failed to invoke cloture falling short of the 60 votes needed to begin debate on a bill that includes the policy on gays in the military. (Photo by Mark Wilson/Getty Images) less
