President Barack Hussein Obama

Get used to the sound of that. Yeah race will not go away as a challenge for all Americans as of January 20, 2009, but this is, well, this is something that I would not have expected in 2000 or 2004. Is there still racial inequality in the US? You betcha. I wait till the day that a black man can coast into the White House on the basis of his surname and/or his connections, that a black man can have a temper or track record of infidelity and still get in. Obama had to earn this in the way that I suspect very few other presidents have.

But America, you’ll get to that. Right now I’m just going to enjoy this.
