The Obama landslide was just what we needed; finally after eight long years of poor leadership we have the potential to make progress once again. I have high hopes for Obama and the Democratic congress.

At the same time we raise our glasses in celebration of Obama's victory, I must pour off a few drops of wine in sadness for the behavior of my fellow Californians. I cannot understand how every major elected leader, Republican and Democrat, Schwarzenegger to Pelosi can urge us to vote no on Prop 8, and still, flush with money from out of state sources (mostly from Utah) Prop 8 can still pass.

So while it's a happy day for civil rights in that we have our first black president, it's also a sad day when the most populous state in the country chooses to amend their constitution to specifically discriminate against a group of people.

Discriminate, verb:
1. to make a distinction against or in favour of a particular person or group
2. recognize or perceive the difference
3. treat differently on the basis of sex or race

Yeah, I'd say "discriminate" fits.
