ENDA moves forward


61-30. Yes, I know it was just a procedural vote. And Speaker Boehner says he won't bring it to a vote in the House AND I also know that today's vote in the Senate was both historic and hard won ... with seven Republicans joining 54 Democrats in a vote to formally begin consideration of the bill — virtually guaranteeing passage later this week -- on legislation that would prohibit discrimination in the workplace against gays. 

So "Huzzah" to those who worked so hard to reclaim this inch of the planet today in the Senate ... and now let's get to work on the next one ... and the next ... and the next!

Do you really think that the house will pass this bill?

No. No I don't. And that's not the point of this post.
