The Return of First Question

Press Secretary Robert Gibbs takes questions from Twitter on Don't Ask Don't Tell and the New START Treaty as part of our ongoing "First Question" series.

Today before his press briefing, Press Secretary Robert Gibbs took a couple questions from Twitter as the next installment in the series we've dubbed "First Question."  He took questions on prospects for the repeal of Don't Ask Don't Tell and ratification of the New START Treaty in the lame duck session of Congress.  As a sign of our commitment to keeping the series going, we've also launched a dedicated page -- -- where you can see the tweets he's answering and archived videos of previous answers.

So go ahead and click over there to see today's answers, and make sure to follow @PressSec and @whitehouse to be alerted to chances to ask Gibbs questions in the future.  And of course don't forget the #1Q hashtag.
