Thank you, America
A woman will be two heartbeats away from the Presidency. Holy fucking shit. Say hello to Madam Speaker Nancy Pelosi, the soon-to-be first female speaker of the House of Representatives (and a proud California gal!). Sometimes, when you least expect it, America wakes up and looks toward the light. Sure, the nation still needs to address its not-so internalized homophobia (gay marriage/domestic partnership bans passed in all but one state where it was on the ballot - we heart Arizona). But overall, it was the rare recent election where I’ve gone to bed feeling proud of our country. Democrats take the House. Democrats look good to take the Senate (pending recount hell in Virginia). Democrats take the majority of Governorships. Now, onto 2008.
