Cool. President Elect Barack Obama.
Listen, I have nothing against the white male - I married one, folks - but I don't have words to describe the excitement I feel about having as our future President, finally, someone other than a white male. Though for me this election was in no way about race, I cannot help but feel pride that this qualified leader has also given birth to a poignant, historical moment in our country. No matter where our political beliefs reside, can we not embrace and share the long overdue grace of just that moment?
