Feelin’ Better Every Day


After the outcome of Proposition 8 it was hard not to go back to not hoping. What was hardest was that for months after the Supreme Court ruling I thought Prop 8 would pass and that it was another useless exercise. As the election approached, and so much change was in the air, I thought it wouldn’t pass — I hoped. And was disappointed one more time.

But hope does spring eternal. The best part of the Obama transition team’s Civil Rights plan is that it isn’t candidate Obama’s plan, but a plan announced from the Office of the President-Elect.

Repealing DOMA is a great place to start. And the rest of that agenda reads very nicely to me.
