wow

i'm gobsmacked about the election turnout - both in total voters at the polls and that we'll start the new year with a black president (and at some of the states where he won)

but i'm equally amazed by mccains concession speech

i hope this is a harbinger of good things to come for america as a whole; that we'll come together to fix what's wrong with this country

and as a friend with young kids pointed out if nothing else... her kids will be raised in a country where it is a fact that a "minority" can win the presidency

eta but i am appalled that prop 8 is currently winning in ca
