      My God, it’s extraordinary. It really is. Many years ago, I turned away from the Republican party due to the negativity, divisiveness and pettiness of the party. In short – they made me sick to my stomach. I have never been a fan of McCain, but his concession speech this evening was nothing less than classy and eloquent. I was stunned, and he earned my respect for that speech. The crowd in AZ, unfortunately, lived up to my expectations.
      But Obama’s speech was breathtaking. I am so proud tonight – I am just busting at the seams.

      Yay! I was tearing up on the way up to SF last night when on NPR they were talking about how in 1961 when Obama was born, his parents would not have been able to sit together on the bus while traveling through a large chunk of this country.

      I am so joyful at how much progress has been made. I am thrilled he will be our president. And, yet, remind myself to not get complacent, because there are many who are still struggling for equality and equal opportunity in our nation.

      Verry Happy about Obama. :) Very Sad about Prop 8. I guess it is still “Separate But Equal” for gay folks. Will this mean 18,000 divorces? A whole state of home wreckers. Californians voted for farm animal rights and against human rights? Pathetic.

      Hope is a magical thing..and to have it restored in this country is an awesome testament to what we can do at the federal level.

      at the state level however – I am truly horrified to see our state become the ONLY state in the US that has voted to take rights out of their state constitution by voting for Prop 8 …let them try to take my marriage away from me..

      what a bitter sweet day.

      Yes – while we celebrate the election of Barack Obama to our presidency, it’s a damn shame that Prop 8 passed in our state. We’ll keep fighting the good fight, however…
