As we reported last night, Rep. Tammy Baldwin (D-WI) defeated Tommy Thompson to become  the U.S. Senator from Wisconsin, and the first openly gay U.S. Senator in history.

Said Baldwin (at 3:25): "Now, I am well aware that I will have the honor to be Wisconsin's first woman U.S. Senator, and I am well aware that I will be the first openly gay member...but I did not run to make history. I ran to make a difference!"
