The American President America Has Been Waiting For

Here. I don't want to get all goopy about this stuff but to my mind McCain's bizarre early presidential slogan was really a better fit for Obama. This recent discovery, the grave of Obama's great-great-great Aunt who was the widow of a Civil War Veteran reminds us that this whole country is a flowing stream of people and bloodlines, of histories and dreams that washed ashore from a thousand origins and that combine to make us unique in the world as long as we celebrate them and don't repress them.
