On the other hand...

Perhaps the conclusion of the article I posted the other day about "What an Obama loss would mean" may be all backwards. Certainly the wise words of my favourite fictional US President also ring quite true to me:

You’re a 47-year-old black man with a foreign-sounding name who went to Harvard and thinks devotion to your country and lapel pins aren’t the same thing and you’re in a statistical tie with a war hero and a Cinemax heroine. To these aged eyes, Senator, that’s what progress looks like.
