14. I'm Proud of my City
Way to go voters of Houston!

The best part, in my opinion, is that her victory had nothing to do with her sexual orientation. She won because of the platform and issues she ran on. People didn't care whether she was heterosexual or a lesbian, but rather saw that she would be a great mayor.
