The American Dream

Congratulations to Barack Obama on securing the Democratic nomination for president today.

It is a good thing that there is no barrier to anybody running for president in our country.

I've always thought that the first African-American president would be a Republican because Americans would be wary of any liberal Black candidate. And conservatism would nullify enough suspicions over race to carry the day.

I still think that. But it truly is a good day that any American can run for president.
