An historic election celebrating the growing diversity of the US and that change is inevitable. Elizabeth Warren and Tammy Baldwin (and others). Maine and Maryland vote to legalize gay marriage. President Obama is the first Democratic President since FDR to win two terms with a majority vote (50%+). We still have much work to do towards our goals of social justice and equality! Forward!
"America, I believe we can build on the progress we've made and continue to fight for new jobs and new opportunity and new security for the middle class. I believe we can keep the promise of our founders, the idea that if you're willing to work hard, it doesn't matter who you are or where you come from or what you look like or where you love. It doesn't matter whether you're black or white or Hispanic or Asian or Native American or young or old or rich or poor, able, disabled, gay or straight, you can make it here in America if you're willing to try."
