How awesome is it that Barack Hussein Obama has been elected the 44th president of the United States? I can honestly say that I never believed that in my lifetime a Black person (Latino, Asian, Native American) would become president. My children have become Obama supporters over the past few months as they have read several biographies about him (the older ones) and understood their mothers' progressive political views. They all happily wore their Obama shirts two days ago as we sent emails and photos to friends and grandparents as reminders to vote. We let all of them (ages 1-9) stay up to hear the election results and we all cheered as victory was announced. This morning they asked if it was still true, which of course, is a question I was still asking myself. Somebody please pinch me if I am still dreaming.
