As of this evening, Seattle has a - possibly its first ever - Socialist on the city council. I was at Kshama Sawant's election day "victory party."
|There I am, beneath the arrow!|
At the time, I was nervous about the premature "victory" label. And things didn't look too good for Socialism, with Sawant's opponent in the lead. But she refused to concede, and today she won the vote!
Congratulations, Kshama Sawant!
