Did you ever think it would happen?

Love him or hate him....did you ever think you would see a non-white president in your lifetime? Notice I posted this in "just for fun" and not the politics section....that was on purpose!

  • I wish we'd gotten a black woman! Kill two birds with one stone, sorta then. Then we wouldn't have to worry about "history making elections" and that hype. THen people can start being elected for thought content instead of the political statement it would make. OH, who am I kidding, the media will always make a big deal if it's not an old white man running.

  • Sure, it was all just a matter of time.

  • All I can say is, "It's about time!"

    I thought is was possible, but I didn't think I would witness it in my lifetime.

  • I figured we'd see a black man before any woman. Unfortunately, history repeats itself.

  • i figured it would happen sooner or later just sad that it's a half black that wasn't born here. it was illegal that he was allowed to run. whats this world coming too when we can't uphold the laws made. i guess it's like that saying promises are made to be broken cause apparently so are the laws.

  • I dont look at it that way at all. I could care less about "making history" with a black or female president. I only look at their qualifications. Who is going to benefit MOST of America. No one person will ever be happy with the president. I personally am not thrilled, but as an American Citizen I feel it is my duty to stand behind our president wheather or not I like him or agree with him.

  • Yes, I knew we would one day! And it's cool to see it happen. Now if we could just get a woman president!
