I'm very pleased with the election results. Not only is Obama back in office, but my state passed the marriage equality bill (a really big deal for me). Also Akin (legitimate rape), Mourdock (similar comments), and a couple of other jerks have been defeated by female senators, one of whom is openly gay. I feel women are finally getting closer to equal representation in the government, and that the country has taken a big step forward.
Still plenty of work to do though, and I remain cautiously optimistic.
