CNN's breaking news is that the Democrat Kathleen Babineaux won the governorship in Louisiana. They're saying it's special because she's a woman. But there's lots of women in government, and state government in particular. My home state of Washington has two female senators, a majority-female supreme court, and possibly a female governor soon.

Let's put it this way: it's more special that Bobby Jindal, the Republican, is Indian (not the "we took your land" kind, the "British took our land" kind). I can't name a single other Indian person in government, except in India. I hear it's more common there.
