Despite a few disappointments in last night’s midterm results, I’m finding hope and light in the following:

So, if you look for it, there was blinding light last night, in the form of amazing diversity (I didn’t even get to the prominent LGBTQ candidates who made history). This is all incredible news for this country, because as I've always maintained, diversity and inclusion are the birthplace of innovation and creativity, and frankly, that includes government. So while last night might not have represented the giant leap many of us were praying for, make no mistake — it’s a solid stride in the right direction.

Onward.
