The 12th Commandment Posted June 5, 2008 Share Posted June 5, 2008 I'm struck today with the fact that we just chose a black man over a woman for the democratic nominee. The fact that either one of them was there, to me, is amazing and a sign of just how far our country has come. The fact that we nominated a black man to run for president of the democratic party is MONUMENTAL. History is now - IMO - and in 40 (or sometime in the future) years this is going to be looked back at as one of the most important and positive times in our history. That said, I'm not voting for Obama and I'm not endorsing him...but my endorsement of his right to be there and a little pride in the fact that he his, is monumental as well. Maybe you younger folks don't realize how big this is. 20 years ago I would've bet big coin that this would never happen. How glad I am that I'm wrong. You think I'm taking it over the top? Stallone style? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
