Well, it looks like Obama's gonna finally win his repeal the Bush tax cuts for the wealthy. (this will only affect those making more than a quarter million a year). And while momentum is on his side, he should get his path-to-citizenship legislation written and passed for illegal immigrants. We've been promising to do something for close to 30 years (since Reagan). Nate SIlver's column from a day or two ago showed how close the election was in Ohio and Florida and how gays made the difference. 5% of the voters identified in Florida exit polls as gay or lesbian and voted for Obama by a 3 to 1 margin. Among the 95% straight voters, the vote was 50/50 Obama & Romney. Maybe the gay vote will get some respect now.
