California is reporting a 52% yes vote on Prop 8 with 94% of the polls reporting.
And in order to find those results on CNN.com I was treated with the information that Arizona and Florida each passed their own bans on gay marriage, while Arkansas has passed a proposition making it illegal for gay couples to adopt children.
So, yes, I shed some tears of happiness last night about Obama...tears that were only slightly related to pregnancy hormones.
This morning I cry a different way entirely.
We might have taken a giant step as a nation, but nation...we still have a long way to go.
My only consolation -- nearly half of California (more than 4.8 million people) voted against 8. Hardly a landslide.
