The First Black President

No, I'm not talking about Clinton. Here's a piece by E.J. Dionne on Illinois Senate candidate Barack Obama, easily the most impressive candidate I've seen in the last two or three election cycles.

Dionne's piece follows up this fine portrait from the New Yorker. Surely he'll be groomed for the top job after he beats whoever's gonna replace public-sex-lovin' Jack Ryan, who dropped out last week. His only liability is his name.
