Heartbreaking Defeat in Maine

It's hard to describe the feelings a lot of us had seeing this happen again. After leading all night we lost Maine and my heart sunk. We won in Washington State (at least that's how it looks, nothing official yet) and Kalamazoo, MI, see a lesbian take the lead in the mayor's race in Houston (there will be a runoff) and an openly gay man elected as mayor in Chapel Hill, NC. But we were all so hopeful about Maine, with so much riding on it. The folks up there dis a great job and ran a good campaign, and yet we lost. My thanks to all of them. And now, we've got a lot to get into on the show today, a lot to sort out and a lot of planning to do.
