Hello Loyal Readers,
I know everyone is doing their 2012 retrospective, and since I already did that with Shane Roth on video, I don’t have much to add except that this election night was pretty much the best one I’ve ever had.
I’ll admit, I haven’t lived through nearly as many election seasons as most of my readers. My political awareness really started with the fumbling confusing mess of the 2000 election and my decision to make politics my career was fueled by the heartbreak of 2004. While 2008 was a wild thrill ride and 2010 incredibly somber, this year’s election had so many incredible victories and happy moments. Seeing the joy on my friend’s faces knowing that they will finally be able to marry the person they love, hearing the delight that more women were elected than ever before, it was a good night.
Also, if you have a minute, take my very short 2012 Reader’s Survey so I can better tailor the content of this site to the readers.
