Laura Flanders: Last Night Was a Victory for Diverse, Grassroots Movements

If there is one thing we learned from last night's results, it's that the white male vote is no longer enough to win an election. Yesterday, a diverse group of voters stood up against the GOP assault on the rights of women, immigrants, minorities and the LGBT community. Nation contributor Laura Flanders joined NAACP President Benjamin Jealous on Democracy Now! to highlight the key coalitions that formed to re-elect Obama, and put progressives like Tammy Baldwin and Elizabeth Warren into the US Senate.

Last night was a loss for misogynist, rape apologists—meaning a huge victory for everyone else. Check out Bryce Covert's coverage here
