What you won't hear the spinners crowing about is the shocking punch to the gut the GOP took in upstate New York's 23rd Congressional District, where a Democrat won for the first time in over 100 years.
Yesterday's vote on same-sex marriage in Maine was a referendum on our collective humanity, and we don't look so great today. But was it a loss for Obama? Certainly not.

Single mothers. Child care providers. Working mothers. Feminists...Four types of women that Bob McDonnell called in his thesis "materialistic," "detrimental to family," and the cause of a "breakdown of society."
