Thank God We Live in a Nation Where Barack Obama Can Run For President


History was made yesterday at the Pepsi Center in Denver. An African American received the nomination of one of the two major political parties of our country, for the Office of the Presidency of the United States of America. Whether one is an Obama fan, or, like the Hedgehogs, one of those who plan to work for the election of John McCain, let's not let the moment slip away without comment and gratitude. Let's give thanks to God that our nation has overcome the legacy of slavery and that we live in a country where any native-born citizen, whatever his or her race, can be elected to her highest office. God Bless America!

We should all say "amen".

Amen. Now, at the risk of sounding parochial, let's work toward the day when a candidate who is a Jew or a Mormon can be nominated.
