7. We won the election. We have had time to celebrate. Now it's time to get back to work.

Just because President Obama won reelection and the Democrats picked up two seats in the Senate doesn't mean that this fight is over. Not by a long shot. On the morning after the election the white power structure and Wall Street still controlled this country. Minorities and women still earned less than white men. Minorities still had a higher unemployment rate and shorter life expectancies. It's going to take years to undo these inequities and all the while the GOP will be trying every trick in the book to deceive future electorates into voting for them.

Yes, we won the battle on Tuesday. Thank God. But the war isn't over and won't be for a long time.
