The message voters gave politicians in this election is that the politics of hate and bigotry and the politics of obstruction will no longer be tolerated. Pro-gay marriage laws won and anti-gay laws lost in four different states last night. Thinly disguised racism--Calling Obama a "Muslim" or claiming he can not legally be president because he's not "American" enough, or calling Latinos "Illegals"--no longer has any place in politics.
I'm really hoping Obama's victory will put a lot of the ugly resentment-based politics we've seen these last four years to rest, and that Republicans will start working with Democrats again to make America an even stronger and more prosperous nation.
