    The Associated Press reports that a spokesman for Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said that a vote to repeal the military's ban of openly gay servicemen and women had been planned for next week before Gaga made waves with a plea during a daytime talk show. Gaga asked Reid to repeal the military's "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy during an interview with Ellen DeGeneres, which aired on Monday.

    Reid's campaign and Gaga traded talking points on Twitter after the lawmaker announced the vote. Reid told Gaga repealing the measure was the right thing to do. "Anyone qualified to serve this country should be allowed to do so," Reid Tweeted on Tuesday. Gaga responded: "God Bless and Thank You, @HarryReid, from all of us, like you, who believe in equality and the dream of this country. We were #BORNTHISWAY."

    Campaign spokesman Kelly Steele said Reid does not take cues from Gaga, however. Hey, it's a start.
