    There has never been an openly gay senator until Jan. 3rd, 2013, when Wisconsin senator Tammy Baldwin was sworn in. She took some time on that day to recognize and celebrate her achievement.

    I think she did this the correct way too; she didn't make it a talking point during her campaign. Yet, she didn't shy away from the issue or try to hide the truth of the matter either. Congrats, Baldwin. At almost no other time in our young country's history would this election win have been possible. In some ways, we actually ARE progressing. Nice to see this.
