America forces another black man to swear on the bible!
Today the United States of America elected its first African American President. And the world got its first black leader that matters (Sorry Mandela). Over 2 million people came out to D.C. to cheer on Barack Obama as he was sworn in as the 44th President.
Obama delivered an honest and inspirational speech, highlighting his goals and emphasizing the great challenges ahead. While doing so, he placed the onus on us, the American people, saying it is our responsibility to bring the change we so desperately crave. That's not what I signed up for. "Yes He Can! Yes He Can!"
So now we have a new President, a new beacon of freedom and hope. America is saved! The world is saved!
Before we get too crazy, lets relax. He hasn't actually done anything. We've been excited before only to be let down. Let us not forget the Ryan Leafs, Len Bias's, and Crystal Pepsi's of the past. Only time will tell how successful Barack Obama can be. So let's just wait and see how he uses his playing time.
