Maine MAY reject gay marriage, not all of the precincts are reporting yet, but the opponents seem to have the edge right now.
But according to CNN, this is huge news for Medical Marijuana proponents;
It looks like for the first time in over 140 years a Democrat wins district 23 in New York State. This is a big achievement considering that the Republicans really screwed this one up, big time.

• Domestic Partnerships in Washington State
• Medical Marijuana in Maine
• NY District 23 rejecting not only a Conservative but also a moderate Republican for the first time in over 140 years.
Republicans might think the tide is turning, but it looks like to me that we are still a nation divided on many issues.
