Gee, let’s see. What happened this week? Oh yeah! President Obama won a second term. His coalition of women, African Americans, Latinos and young people held firm. Marriage equality got the thumbs up in four states. Wisconsin made history by making Rep. Tammy Baldwin (D) the first openly gay member of the U.S. Senate. And more women will be in that chamber than ever before.
