2004 was the next most important election and we fucked that up too.
This one is less important for two reasons - 1) the Republican choice is not as pure evil as the last two, and 2) they have very little chance of winning.
The really important things to fight for are things that 1) make a big difference and 2) have a high chance of going the wrong way.
So let's stop patting ourselves on the back. Getting things right after your stupid mistakes have blown up in your face is not really anything to be proud of.
I also get the feeling that some liberals are very pleased to be electing a black man. Oh, how very enlightened we are. How magnanimous of us whites sharing our stranglehold on power with other races. Think of how impressed the Europeans will be.
