    I'm ashamed that we don't have Universal healthcare and that the middle-class has been getting hosed for 30 years. I am ashamed at some of the racism that's come out from opponents of Obama.

    That said...

    We elected a Black President. We had the first female Speaker of the House. We've repealed DADT and allow LGB members of the military to serve openly. Marriage equality is rapidly expanding. All of those things have happened fairly recently. As bad as things are in certain policy areas, we're also doing some amazing things.
