    Too bad that it is marred by gay marriage ban in 3 more states, including California :-(

    Congratulations to the United States and to Barack Obama. I hope this heralds a new age of greater equality and inclusion at home and greater responsibility abroad.

  5. Agree with Alex – great news, the most liberal president in 30 years has just been elected, just a shame prop.8 had to come and rain on our parade. Any chance of a proposition 9 to counter it?

  6. “Iowa, a state that is more than 95% white”

    Hey, Maine’s the whitest state of all, and Obama absolutely crushed McCain here.

    Too bad Cali had to go and mar an otherwise perfect night by letting Prop 8 pass, but oh well. We won the most important victory of all, and it’ll mean more to our cause in the long run than defeating a single anti-gay proposition.
