Historic Moment_Obama Wins in Iowa Caucus

Although the reports seem to say that the overwhelmingly white Iowa voters did not see race as a factor in their decision, the fact that Obama garnered 37.5% of the vote marks a significant moment in American history. While it does not mean that America is by any sense a post-racist society, it does mean that race is not as over-determining a category as it was in the past. You can be white, love Oprah, and vote for Obama and it actually be a really good thing because you can bring about change. So thank you Iowa for keeping the faith that one can be judge others by the content of their character over the color of their skin.

Congratulations Obama! You really do represent the potential for change because you have made this moment happen.
