I am so, so thrilled and happy about Obama’s win.   I loved his speech and his invocation of Lincoln’s words from the Gettysburg address.  I’ve felt this giddyness all morning that makes me want to run up to my fellow supporters and shout “Yes We Can!”   If he can run this country as well as he ran his campaign, it will be a big, big start in overcoming this mess.

But I am also so, so depressed about the trending returns in CA on Prop 8.  I’m hoping that the fight against bigotry wins, but it doesn’t look good right now, with 84% precincts reporting.
