Fans of healthcare reform can thank Nancy Pelosi's lucky lavender pumps for the Affordable Care Act being upheld today. They were the same shoes the U.S. House Minority Leader wore when President Barack Obama's healthcare reform law passed in 2010, and she wore them today when it was upheld as constitutional.
While everyone's favorite killjoy Mitt Romney has vowed to toss out Obamacare if he's elected president (in your dreams, Romney), today, in a move that proved that America is finally taking a step in the right direction, the Supreme Court ruled in favor of the plan. Let's raise a glass.

The struggle for the gay community to be allowed the same rights as their heterosexual counterparts has been an uphill battle for hundreds of years. Although once upon a time in some corners of the world, homosexuality was viewed as normal behavior, it eventually evolved into something that society decided was evil, and those who were gay were denied basic human rights.
From Pres. Barack Obama expressing his support for gay marriage in an interview with Robin Roberts of ABC's Good Morning America, to the struggle to repeal Proposition 8 in California, to the misleadingly-named Defense of Marriage Act being ruled unconstitutional, it's been a game-changing year in gay marriage rights.
A monumental ruling by the First Circuit Court of Appeals in Boston today declared the Defense of Marriage Act, the national law that declared marriage as a union "between one man and one woman," unconstitutional. The ruling sets the stage for DOMA to be taken up by the U.S. Supreme Court, which could lead to federal approval of same-sex marriages.
Mirror, mirror on the wall: Who's the sexiest president of them all? Nearly 50 years after John F. Kennedy's untimely assassination, many Americans would still say that the Brookline-born Democrat is the most physically attractive POTUS to date. However, having since elected a Hollywood star, a Texan cowboy and a Hawaiian heartthrob into office, there's no denying that JFK has some stiff competition.
When President Obama publicly announced his support of gay marriage on May 9, there seemed to be little question: Obama has the gay vote locked down. Though, of course, not all gays care about gay marriage, nor will all gays be voting Democrat come November. Yes, gay Republicans do exist. Even in the blue states.
Reportedly, Bristol Palin received death wishes for her recent blog post about Obama's support for gay marriage. The 21-year-old plastic-surgery fiend took to her blog after the prez's announcement last week, accusing him of deferring to Sasha and Malia when making policy decisions.
Well, well, well — how the mighty have fallen! Or at least the semi-mighty. Just one day after President Obama voiced his support of same-sex marriage, Mitt Romney's dark past has come back to haunt him. Could this be a little karmic retaliation for opposing gay marriage, Mitt?
Clinton remembers her mom ahead of Mother's Day, telling a crowd in New York that her mother, Dorothy Rodham, grew up in neglect.
"I could never be a politician. But as uncomfortable as I would be doing so, I have no problem with Obama's long-planned 'change of heart.' This dude's made huge, measurable strides for gay rights, and if being coy about his plans for gay marriage for a few years was needed to get him elected, then so be it. LGBT persons will be better off, and federal same-sex marriage recognition will come sooner because of it."
We all knew that President Barack Obama backed gay marriage in philosophy a long time ago. But in a historic announcement today, he finally came out and said he thinks same-sex marriage "should be legal," one day after North Carolina disappointingly passed Amendment 1, which says the state only recognizes marriage between a man and a woman.
My sister is a stay-at-home mom. Her day starts at 6 a.m., when my nephews get up, and isn't over until the last of the two monkeys heads off to bed around 8 p.m. Every single second of her day is dedicated to my two nephews, ages two and three, and I can say without a single doubt in my mind that my sister is the hardest worker I know.
Do you have to like or love someone to be considerate, kind and courteous? The answer to that question is simply- No. You can be respectful without agreeing with, or even liking another person. One reason this is such a vital life skill for our children, is for the rest of their lives they will need to interact with, work with and deal with people they may feel are unpleasant. At a young age we begin to establish our own boundaries.
