Hilary Clinton has officially announced tonight that she is officially dropping out of the race for President. She has plans now to endorse Obama later this week.

That being said it is time for the next important order of business and that is the news that for the first time in the history of the United States of America we officially have are first black presidential nominee. It is a proud and historic moment for our country and it is a moment that so far has been hard fought by Obama and his supporters. I think at this point it is safe to say that he has run an intelligent campaign and his people have done an absolutely phenomenal job in winning this nomination. It really is an amazing time right now in the United States and it is exciting as a young person to feel, even in a small way to be actively participating in something so important. It’s an amazing moment to see someone young, energized, exciting and more symbolic of our shared creeds in this country.

The real work lies ahead now for the Obama camp. McCain will be pulling out all the stops to do whatever he can to smear and bring Obama down. It is going to be a tough time but what could potentially be gained is worth the fight. It is a thrilling time for sure and I think a lot of eyes, all over the world will continue to be focused on where this is all going. There is no doubt that America now finds itself in the throes of political history. I just hope for all our sakes that this is the beginning of correcting some awful mistakes made over the last 8 years. We have a lot of work to do and we need to get to it.

One Response to “Our First Black Presidential Nominee”

  1. Adam Okrasinski Says:

    While it may be true that Obama is the first black presidential nominee with a decent shot at becoming president, it is incorrect to say that he is the first black nominee. Lenora B. Fulani was the first black woman to have her name on the ballot for president in all 50 states in 1988. There have been many other African-Americans who have run for president and had their names on some of the ballots, the first to do so in 1904. I too root for Obama, not as the first black presidential candidate, but as the best presidential candidate.
