Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.

ATTENTION: READ THE RULES.

  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Please begin with an informative title:

A large group of tired, hard-working campaigners sat around the television at the Mid-Cape Democratic Town Committee campaign headquarters with the obligatory election-night pizza and watched the election returns. Computers were running and smartphones were lit up as we sought the local, state and national numbers.

We were watching ABC when phones started ringing and people were hearing that NBC had called the race for Warren. There was sort of a confusing cheer, we were watching numbers -results - that were close but hadn't see the race called. We switched to NBC and waited to see the call for ourselves. We did. We cheered.

She won. With a small percentage of precincts still out in the middle of the night here in MA - she seems to have done it 54% to 46%.  

Senator Centerfold, let me get that the door for you, and don't let it hit you in that centerfold crease on your way out.    

Warren's acceptance speech included so many of the things we want to hear, she will represent us and keep us in mind while she does the work in Washington.  We won't be uncovering votes that were taken as part of a party platform, votes that are detrimental to us, the people she represents.

We can TRUST her.

And, in her acceptance speech she reminded us that 50 years ago last night, Teddy Kennedy gave his acceptance speech as he first took the office of the US Senate.  For those of us sitting in that office in Teddy's hometown, that means more than anyone can ever understand. If you lived here, you knew him.

Elizabeth Warren is the first woman elected to the US Senate in MA. We have never elected a woman governor and out of 10 congressmen, only one is a congresswoman.

And it appears that overall Democrats have a net gain in the senate, along with more women than every before.

So many people worked so hard on her campaign, many gave up summers and weekends spending hours knocking on doors or with phones attached to their ears.

Her win would make Teddy smile.

To make the night even better and Teddy's smile grow wider, over in the southeastern part of our state, where Democrat Barney Frank has retired, young Joe Kennedy, Teddy Kennedy's grand-nephew, won his bid for a seat in congress.

As I type, there are still races too close to call, but it appears President Obama has won in numbers that, to me, represent a mandate. The GOP of the old white men is fading fast. We have hit the refresh button and have started to see a change in who governs our country. Tonight, the state of NH for example, has become the first state with all of its Washington Reps - Senate and Congress - women. And they've elected a women governor.

Oh, and as a resident of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, if anyone sees him wandering around looking for something to do, please tell Mr (not Gov!!!) Romney to stop calling this state home. And please tell him it's time for him to just GO AWAY away. Buh Bye!

A Message to the GOP: Start a war on women and you might not like how each battle is won.
