PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA

I still can't get my head around it, even though I was there with 2 million other people, and the lady behind me jumped up and down and screamed "LEAD US, LEAD US" with the kind of desperation in her voice that can't be faked or forced.

I was 13 when I saw Clinton and Bush walk into the Capitol, so any one of my politically aware years has been with a President I was initially wary about, then disappointed, then shocked, then not shocked and instead horrified. I'm also at the tail-end of awareness of disbelief that the President wouldn't always be a old white dude. Maybe it's just from having slightly older parents, but there's no way that this doesn't seem like a TV show to me. On the other hand, it makes perfect sense, considering the morals of my parents and the teaching of "diversity", whatever that means anymore during my school years.

President Barack Obama. I'm glad to be living in this alternate universe.

What's next?
