For the Record
I would like to congratulate senator Obama on being the first African-American to receive the nomination of a major political party. While I deeply disagree with him on most issues I do recognize the historic nature of tonight's events. It makes me even more proud to be an American to see this barrier broken. I realize that racism is still a very real problem in this country, but this is a big step in the right direction.
