Wow, I have to admit I had my doubts this would ever happen, so thanks to all the people who, unlike me, knocked on doors and made phone calls to assure Barack Obama would be elected tonight! We have a lot of hard work ahead, but I am so full of hope tonight - there is so much change that can be accomplished if we can just keep up the momentum and if we can truly work together over the next few years.

Obama sweeps to victory
As happy as I am with the way the election went, I'm very sorry that Proposition 8 (the anti-same-sex marriage amendment) passed. The country demonstrated that race is not as big an issue as it used to be, but there are still too many people willing to discriminate against people who happen to love and want to spend their lives with men and women who are the same gender as they are.
