    We got marriage equality in four states. Marijuana was legalized in two. More women in the Senate. A lot of Democratic victories. In my area, Alan Grayson is now my Representative.

    How did this happen?

    Do you remember in 2008 when Sarah Palin sneered at President Obama because he was "just a community organizer"? I do.

    If she's sneering now, she's an idiot.

    OFA and other groups GOT THE VOTE OUT. That includes Kossacks here, as well.

    President Obama's ground game was one of the best in history. More people were registered, more people were driven to the polls, more people volunteered... THAT is what brought us these victories. Not just the Presidential win, but the downticket stuff as well.

    It was the power of money, vs. the power of the people. President Obama, OFA, and many here at Daily Kos bet on the people, and we WON.

    Hope lives!!
