    Not surprised!
    Yay at least for one of my senators!

    But like I said, not too surprised, there has always been talks and rumors about his possible homosexuality. But all and all he is a very nice, genuine and progressive person. I've been able to meet him many times seeing as he's been a senator since I was basically born and he's from my area!

    again... Whoot for one of the Wisconsin Senators!

    I'm sure you didn't mean this quite the way it reads, but for the record, many people oppose DOMA who are heterosexual, because it is wrong. And there are "nice, progressive" people who are hetero- as well as homosexual.

    But it's very good news. I wish more of our representatives would vote conscience rather than polls.
