  3. I don't know if it's the best but it's pretty damn good.

    What's stunning about it is that everyone around them look HAPPY for them!

    It's easy to forget sometimes that things could actually be that way.

  4. They took a moment that was about Obama and turned it into a moment about themselves. This night wasn't about them - it was about getting Obama elected and they said, "Hey everybody! Pay attention to us nobodies!"

  5. @Really?: Seriously, dude? It wasn't just a great night for Obama. It was a great night for all of us (except the GOP, racists, and homophobes, but who gives a f*ck about them?). This wasn't about stealing Obama's thunder, this was about celebrating the right to love someone of the same gender and being legally allowed to marry in 4 more states. There was more enough enough love, good vibes and happiness for everyone on the right side of history that night.

  6. @REALLY? Whatever Debbie Downer! There were 20,00 people in the convention hall that night. They didn't take the spotlight off of the President. Lighten up. If it were a heterosexual couple at the Romney event you probably would be all giddy.

  10. Proposing at a political party? Not romantic.
