All day, I read blog posts about elderly black people casting their first votes for Barack Obama. But at my own polling place, my thoughts ...
I'd run into my neighbor and her four-year-old daughter, and then other neighbors who had twins just a few weeks ago. They had a double-stroller decked out with Obama-Biden stickers.
It made me think about how for these kids, and my own 2-year-old son, it would seem normal for the president to be a black man. He'll be the first president they really know -- especially if he wins a second term. They will have no idea how extraordinary his victory is and what it means for the country.
And that's a good thing in and of itself.
