But yesterday’s inauguration wasn’t about economic policies and military strategies. No, it was about the fact that America has its first black President in our history. I gladly concede the historical and emotional importance this occasion has and will continue to have in our society and our history. I do not deny it nor would I attempt to underplay it. I understand it is a HUGELY momentous day to a great many people. A day that an entire generation of people still living thought would never, could never, come. Of the fact that our nation could elect a black President, I am proud.
