11-6-12 Obama, Elizabeth Warren, Tammy Baldwin (I think) Maine, Maryland, Washington State, And On And On

If you had told me 10 years ago that a Presidential election would be between an African-American and a Mormon,  that a majority of the US would approve of gay marriage – not legalized in 50% of the country … that a gay woman (apparently) would be elected to the Senate – that two states would vote to legalize possession of small amounts of marijuana I would have laughed. If you had told me that pro and anti rape would be an issue I would have thought you were nuts.

Small but interesting point, Since 1928 the only times Republicans have won the Presidency someone named Bush or Nixon was on the ticket.
