  •  It is important to note that VERY many of our (9+ / 0-)

    friends, allies and political brethren in North Carolina fought VERY hard in this battle, and that the state of North Carolina did NOT speak with one voice in this result.

    Further, the battle goes on, as it would have had we won the victory we hoped for. Chrislove wrote a terrific diary about further plans from the Campaign for Southern Equality, in place since before this vote. There is more work to be done, and ignoring the passion and the power of those fighting in North Carolina is a huge mistake, as our opponents are about to learn.

      come out against this amendment. It crossed party lines and was unbelievably noteworthy. It's precisely this vote that makes be think we've turned a corner, ugly as the entire thing was.

      •  I could not be MORE proud to stand with those (4+ / 0-)

        still fighting this fight. They have inspired me more than I can express, and my resolve is only strengthened by their great spirit and passion. I know you understand, my friend. You inspire me, too.

        We have a lot of work ahead, but I could not be prouder and happier with my 'team,' which will NEVER say die. We will win this, shorter term disappointments notwithstanding. And our celebratory party, in its way, will last the rest of our lives.
