We should all, every one of us - whether you supported Obama or one of the other candidates, or heck, even if you prefer the Republicans or another third party over the Democrats - take a moment to acknowledge and reflect on what can only be described as a MAJOR historical moment in our nation's history, a moment that is much bigger than merely the 2008 election!
THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY, WHICH USED TO BE THE PARTY OF THE JIM CROW SOUTH, IS THE FIRST MAJOR AMERICAN POLITICAL PARTY TO NOMINATE AN AFRICAN AMERICAN CANDIDATE FOR THE PRESIDENCY.
Seriously, let that sink in for a moment. Given our tragic history with racial injustice, this is monumental... We are witnessing history as it happens. It is a great day for the United States and a great day for the Democratic Party.
