Today has got to be my favorite day to listen to and read the news. I mean in ages!
Here's a nice line from the NY Times editorial:
African-Americans and Hispanics overwhelmingly supported Mr. Obama. White men voted for Mr. Romney; he won among those who said they opposed gay marriage, wanted to outlaw abortion, or favored mass deportation of illegal immigrants. None of those are majority positions in this country anymore.
My favorite line on facebook last night (okay, one of them), was after President's acceptance speech:
"He shoulda dropped the mic."
Congrats, America! Congrats to all of us who are minorities or middle class or want to protect women's rights or feel like gay people should have the same rights as the rest of us or feel like immigrants should get a fair shake in this country. In the words of Dora, los hicimos! We did it!!
Now! Back to work!!
