And really ... the "lost" battle is Obama winning the presidency, but after listening to his acceptance speech from Chicago, it's hard *not* to like him. What an incredible orator. If he can live up to his speech, I'll be impressed.
California, Arizona, and Florida all passed measures to add a line to their respective state constitution, defining marriage as being between a man and a woman. To me, this is SO much more important than the presidential election. It's 1:30 in the morning. I've stayed up specifically to keep tabs on those results in CA. I'm sufficiently sure that the prop has passed to where I can now go to bed.
