Election Part 2

More good news on the election -- Voters in Oregon and California rejected parental notifcation requirements, and voters in Missouri supported stem cell research. Arizona voters became the first to reject an anti-gay marriage law, and voters in Kansas rejected the man who has been on a witchhunt against family planning clinics.

Now what's interesting to me is that none of the news analysis of these votes talked about people voting their values (as surely they would have had the results been reversed.) But, the fact is they DID. They voted their beliefs that people have the right to privacy in their most important personal decisions. They voted against intolerance and they voted for parental involvement not forced notification.

And I'll leave it to other progressive bloggers to discuss the news about the Secretary of Defense.
