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.

Here's the sad thing: the Country is in such a state of shit under Republican leadership, yet the Dems, even if they win the Senate, will do so by the slimmest of margins. What the hell else would have to go wrong for people to vote for a change in leadership? Not to mention the new wave of "socially conservative democrats" that might as well be Republicans.
