Now, I don't think TAMB is the best place to discuss politics, but Barack Obama has won the 2008 Presidential Election, becoming the first minority President in the history of the United States of America.
I, for one, am very excited that he won, these next four years should be interesting.
Honestly, I'm 100% happy that Proposition 1 here (Allows for a convention to change the state constitution) got shot down so quick. Sure, Obama winning is nice in my book, but that a 20 point difference to "No" on Prop 1 is a much bigger win to me then anything else.
However, I was disappointed that Cappiello lost the bid for our state rep. He looked like he had a lot of potential, much better then Murphy. At least Cappiello didn't rule another bid in two years, but that stuff doesn't mean much unless you live in... well... here in this district.
