2008 electionFirst Barack. Then Hillary. I cried, then I cried some more. Could we really have an African-American president or a woman leading the White House who isn’t just a thinly-drawn TV character? I sure hope so. And what about a woman of color president? (Only not Condi.)

Could it be that the times, they really are-a-changing, albeit ever so slowly? (Fantasy political football: Hillary and Barack become running mates! But who would be top dog? Hil or Bar?)

Wonky friends in DC, do you think any of this is possible?

    It’s kind of encouraging to see who’ll be running for US president next year. Very nice to see that it’s going to be a relatively diverse crop of candidates.
