YES WE DID!!!


I can hardly believe it. I haven't felt like this since 1992. Could this really be change that we can believe in? I'd like to think so. I think Sen. McCain's speech was very moving and gracious. And Obama's speech blew me away. I can hardly wait for the inauguration. We now have the chance to come together as a country and effect some real change. What a wonderful opportunity!!!

I am very sad that California passed Proposition 8. I hope that someday, we will look back on this time and think, "How could we have ever denied rights to our fellow citizens?!" Whatever your stance on gay marriage, I would like to think that people would realize that it is very wrong to deny rights to our fellow Americans. Just as it was wrong to deny women and African-Americans the vote for so long. Sometimes I think we take two steps forward and one step back. Still, progress is being made. I'm just a little impatient.

Rumored to be posted at Obama Campaign HQ:

"Rosa Sat So Martin Could Walk
Martin Walked So Obama Could Run
Obama Ran So Our Children Can Fly"

I am heartbroken about prop 8, but completely over the moon about our new president!

I was wondering about Proposition 8. Thanks for the update on that.

Prop 8 definitely throws a shadow on the election. I am pleased that Obama won at least.
