Gay rights bill moves forward as opposition silent

Sen. Tom Harkin, D-Iowa, right, chairman of the Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions Committee, stands with Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, just after the Senate cleared a major hurdle and agreed to proceed to debate a bill that would prohibit workplace discrimination against gay, bisexual and transgender Americans, at the Capitol in Washington, Monday, Nov. 4, 2013. The bipartisan vote increases the chances that the Senate will pass the bill by week's end, but its prospects in the Republican-led House are dimmer. (AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite)
