On the one hand, what a crappy blight on an otherwise wonderful election!
I am sorry for all the people who live in those states and for the rest of us who might wonder what's coming next to our states. But on the other hand, Barack Obama supports gay rights (at least up to and including civil unions) and I can only hope that things will shift during his presidency.
He supports civil unions (as McCain does) but not from the position of someone who is merely tolerant of gay relationships. He approves of them from what I can ascertain. So I am wondering what might be possible with a president who is an ally!
Hoping for positive change...
