Off topic warning...

I love reading the Wild Hunt Blog. It's the best blog I've found for Pagan news, hands down!

As for the topic at hand, I am an almost enternal optomist (regardless of the fact that I write Dark Fantasy) and really hope he'll win. We could all use the proper recognition of our faiths. After all, if they accept one, the next win becomes even easier!
