Thread Name: BS: Obama Wins!!!
Subject: RE: BS: Obama Wins!!!
I am delighted with Mister Obama's victory and his gracious acceptance speech. Thanks god there is still a smidgen of relative sanity left in the overall populace. I am astonished at the bitterness that is surfacing amongst his detractors, and the extremity of their assertions. But there were major positive events buried in the noise of this election, aside from Obama's win. Elizabeth Warren is an example. Gay marriage rights in three states. Legalization of cannabis in two states. First gay Congress-person goes to Washington. SOme really good corrective steps.
It's not that I don't appreciate the concerns of my conservative friends; it is the estimation of relative importances that sets us apart.
I am very happy about Obama's win; the alternative would have been horrific.
