Congratulations, President-elect Barack Obama

I have been, and will probably continue to be critical of Obama on this blog. But for now, the historical significance of Barack Obama’s election overwhelms differences of ideology and political machinations. The joy on the faces of the black citizens of Chicago and around the country is more than just the euphoria of winning in the game of politics, for that has happened before. It reflects how far this country has come from the days when these same people would have been denied a decent life or an education, much less the right to vote or the possibility that one of them could become the leader of the free, yes, the FREE world. If Obama accomplishes nothing else, he will have demonstrated how America has truly left racism behind and is for good and all, a land of opportunity. Job well done.
