Sure, but I never claimed they were TSUNAMI like victories.

I don't think she'd have stayed on the high road during the campaign, I think that's one of the reasons I'm encouraged by this; voters didn't buy into the personal attacks so much.

No, and at the same time, the opportunities for the GOP to take the low road towards her would've been even greater, which is one reason why I doubt any hypothetical HRC "tsunami." Not that that's her fault, mind you.

well I hope so, Irving.....

but certainly people like Rush, Hannity & Savage et al...... will be undercutting Obama from today on.......

and yeah I hope we can do some kind of less us Vs them...but there will always be those to whom we'll have to fight --hopefully :Pray: only in the Ballot Box.

Listen to your own words on those who'd keep the G/L/B/TG community in second (or third class depending on where you live & how people were/are reasied) " I will demolish them".
doesn't exaCTELY sound like "kumbiya" to me....FOR which I perfectly understand!

Not by your definition, of course. But we don't all work from your definition.

I still remember meeting my Irish relatives in Ireland in the 90's and they were talking about OMB (old man Bush) and how they didn't like him and they liked Bill Clinton. My Mom talked to her cousin's son on the phone today, he came to Chicago in 96 and he stayed and just moved back to Ireland a few months back. He told her how impressed he is with Obama and said that America is on the way back again. It just feels good to have people in other countries feel that way, hopefully it will last.

they've made it very clear that they will insinuate that gay people are child molesters in order to pass discriminatory legislation.

they have no argument. that's been demonstrated in here over and over again as i, and countless others in these threads, have and will continue to demolish their arguments.

i don't care if i'm coming off like an a-hole. i will not be presented as a threat to families, children, society, etc.

i will not.

this is a single piece in a puzzle, whereas the cultural divide in the Baby Boom generation seems much more all-encompassing, and came to a cultural head in the 2000 election where we saw for the first time a real red/blue divide.

Obama rewrote the map.

^^^^^^^
(that was sort of my thot, but i know Obama is not for that)

NYC was avery good third!

Maybe i wasn't looking at the screen then (at Rockefeller Center & MSNBC big screens ) I saw just one very short dark live vid feed looking at the WHite House to just very dark silouettes of the "well wisher's there!

PS: my Word Spell red-underlines "Obama".......some TECH PERSON one DAY SOON will have to RECONFIGURE THAT ONE!

So who here claimed that Bush won a TSUNAMI like victory in 2000 and 2004?

Bush didn't win by 6% of the popular vote, nor did he have such a convincing electoral vote victory. Nor did he flip a significant number of states that hadn't gone Republican in years.

I think I may have some sort of compulsive disorder, I don't mind differing opinions but I have to correct complete distortion of facts.
