This week, America took another step on the path leading to a more perfect union -- while demonstrating that it's a journey that proceeds in fits and starts. On Tuesday, a divided Supreme Court took the nation backwards by striking down a crucial section of the Voting Rights Act. The very next day, the equally divided high court moved us forward by striking down the Defense of Marriage Act. This ruling wasn't a victory just for gay Americans -- just as Tuesday's decision wasn't a defeat just for minority voters. When our nation's policies move us towards our founding ideals, it's a victory for all Americans. Speaking of victories, this week's dramatic filibuster by Texas State Sen. Wendy Davis, which blocked an extreme anti-choice bill, demonstrated that the spirit needed to keep making our union more perfect is alive and well -- and also marked the birth of new political star. #StandWithWendy #PinkSneakersRule
