Barack Obama - Four More Years

The Winners:
Barack (Bronco) Obama and Joe Biden!

Michelle Obama!


Same sex marriage initiatives!


The Senate! It stays in Democratic hands! But let’s write to our Senators and ask for filibuster reform!

Elizabeth Warren! She beats ex nude model Scott Brown and is elected first female senator of Massachusetts!

Tammy Baldwin! She wins in Wisconsin and becomes the first openly gay senator ever!

Math! (And Nate Silver and Sam Wang)

And The Losers:

The Tea Party lost big! Tea Party candidates who made outrageous claims about rape and God lost big.

Karl Rove lost big! When everyone else had called the presidency for Obama, Rove at Fox News was still doing his sums, arguing a Romney victory in Ohio is possible. As Sam Wang so aptly put it:

Wow. Just wow. (1) Anger, (2) Denial, (3) Bargaining… holy Kuebler-Ross.
Billionaries and their Super PACs attempting to buy the elections lost big!

Millionaires and billionaires who will now have to help pay down the debt by paying taxes at a fair rate!

Republican governors and Republican state legislatures who fought to suppress the vote of African American and minority voters lost!

I am forgetting someone? Oh, yeah… that guy: Mitt Romney.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
