Obama Makes History

Barack Obama is the Democratic nominee for president. This is an historic event. An African-American is the nominee of president of a major political party. This is a great day for America. No matter if he wins or loses the presidency, he has changed America forever.

Now we can have a different conversation about race. Now we can have a different conversation about power. We can no longer think certains things cannot or shoud not happen.

Obama is the voice of hope. He is the voice of courage. He is the voice of unification, despite his liberal leanings. He is willing to talk to anyone. He will work with Republicans, he will talk with conservatives. He will be gracious.

America, I am so proud of you.

Oh sure, that's cause you're a guy! What about women, huh? ;-)

Yeah, right. Boys rule, man.

Whatever. :-)

Hillary has cleared a lot of brush. Because of her, people are going to become more aware of just how big the pool is of qualified women to run for high political office, even president. But she will not be the one to arrive.

In fact, she will be a little like Moses who got to look into the promised land, but never got to task the milk and honey.
