I wish to go on record because it's no secret that Obama's election didn't thrill me to pieces. But it has nothing, absolutely nothing to do with color.
I am absolutely thrilled that the blacks are represented by a Black President. I can understand their joy and excitement. I'm happy for their moment. I'm glad they have a good family man to to look up to as well. For many young black men, I hope Obama will inspire them to lead better lives.
That's all well and fine.
I would have been thrilled over the top or beyond measure though, if he were a Black Republican President with core conservative values.
