Congratulations, America! “Great news”:http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2008/nov/05/uselections2008-barackobama4.
Obama’s speech was fantastic, and McCain’s was very dignified.
Unfortunately, there is one piece of bad news: Stephen Fry “tweets”:http://twitter.com/stephenfry/status/991361168 that California’s Proposition 8 has passed. It outlaws same-sex marriage, and is a “nasty, bigoted piece of work”:http://www.antipope.org/charlie/blog-static/2008/11/a_revolting_proposition.html. I can’t find any official news on it at the moment, though, so let’s hope that the good Mr Fry is just misinformed, out there in Africa as he is.
