In the Senate, welcome Senators Warren, Donnelly, Murphy, King, Heitkamp (hopefully), Kaine and (hooray) Tammy Baldwin (our first openly gay Senator).
In the House, Bachmann is only 400 votes ahead, while Maine, Maryland and Washington appear to have approved gay marriage and Colorado and Washington state to have legalized recreational marijuana. Minnesota’s gay marriage vote is on a knife edge.

What else are you celebrating tonight?
ETA: “Signed, sealed, delivered”. Hee.
