Along with a Democrat in the White House, they also control the Senate and the House of Representatives meaning the years to come will be years in which laws and acts are actually passed and not a deadlock between warring factions. No more vetoes, progress will finally start again. America, you're sensible cousin from the Great White North could not be prouder of you! You've finally told the world "WE DON'T WANT TO BE HATED ANYMORE!". The cheers and the tears shed are only the start to the great example I truly feel you will set for the rest of the world.
So why would I have mixed feelings? Well an anomaly occurred in the great state of California. California was one of the four key states that essentially locked it in that Barack Obama would become the first African-American President of the United States of America. They are now (most likely) the first state to grant homosexual couples the right to marry and then take it away from them.
I actually teared up a little. The President-elect of the United States, in my mind, a homophobic country, mentioned the gay community in his victory speech after learning he had been elected the 44th President of the United States of America!
