Yes We Did!


I'm happy today for many reasons.

I'm happy the American people chose the right man yesterday to lead this country into the future.

I'm happy they chose the candidate who ran the far better campaign and never took the low road of ugly smears and name-calling.

I'm happy we'll now have a First Lady who not only possesses some sass and sex appeal but also a voice of her own.

I'm happy (and relieved) Joe Biden will be the person only a heartbeat away from the Presidency--and also that we'll get to see more of his two attractive grown sons.

I'm happy the First Daughters will be getting a new puppy (even though I'm more of a cat person).

I'm happy both Indiana and Ohio turned blue this year.

I'm happy Elizabeth Dole lost in North Carolina but disappointed that the evil Michele Bachmann won in Minnesota.

I'm happy our new President-elect seems to be well-liked by Mother Nature since the weather was gorgeous in Chicago last night--and in Colorado for the convention.

I'm happy Pat Buchanan's guy lost and that Rachel Maddow's won.

I'm happy Elisabeth Hasselbeck's guy lost and Joy Behar's won.

I'm happy the dignified John McCain of 2000 finally returned last night while delivering his gracious concession speech.

I'm happy (and relieved) Sarah Palin will not be a heartbeat away from the Presidency--but I am hoping Tina Fey will return for a farewell appearance as Bible Spice.

I'm happy we will no longer have to hear about "mavericks", "hockey moms" and "plumbers"--at least not until Sarah and Joe run together in 2012.

I'm happy Biden's 91-year-old mother got to share in her son's victory, but I'm sad that Obama's grandmother did not.

I'm happy the young people of America (under 30) came out to vote this year.

I'm happy we will have a President who can say the words "gay" and "straight", but I'm very disappointed that Proposition 8 passed in California (however, I do believe that gay marriage will become legal in more states--even again in California--in the future).

I'm happy the rest of the world seems as thrilled by the outcome of this election as we are.

I'm happy the Bush years are almost over.

I'm happy that change has finally come to America.

I'm happy that Barack Obama will be our 44th President.

I took these photos and videos last night at the rally. Though we were nowhere near the stage, Oprah or Brad Pitt, it was still one of the most exciting nights of my life.

I really, really want to feel the joy of Obama's election, but the passage of Prop 8 in California has made Obama's win a bittersweet victory. Glad you guys got to be present for the historic event! We're going to try to hit D.C. for the inauguration.

It's only a matter of time before more states legalize gay marriage. And someday California will legalize it once again. That's my gut feeling.

You got closer than I did!!! But it was a blast. If only the giant screen could have been in sync with the audio.

It was a blast! Thanks for checking out my blog, Kevin!

OH HAPPY DAY!!! We may actually have a chance now! Gay marriage will come to pass....it may not be now, or next year, but I'm sure within our lifetimes it will..

CONGRATS President Elect Obama!!!

I agree. We might be very old by then, but gay marriage will come to pass someday across the country. And maybe we'll even have an openly gay President! That would be something.
