The Audacity Of Hope

It is incredibly likely that the next President of the United States will be a Black man. Senator Barack Obama has announced that he will open an exploratory committee and that he will announce his intentions in February, around Lincoln's birthday, in Lincoln's home-state, during Black History Month.

Now we just have to convince Colin Powell's wife to let him run for president - no Republican could beat him in the primary - and we will have the first all-Black election for president, because no Democrat has anything for Obama either. Powell's not running, but Obama has rekindled a degree of political hopefulness in me - audacious hope, one might say - and it doesn't hurt to hope for the best possible scenario.
