An Historical Moment

February 3, 1870: African American men get the right to vote (though truth be told, they were prevented from voting in a lot of states until the Civil Rights Act of 1964).

Aug. 26, 1920:
Women get the right to vote.

Today I stood in a voting booth and had to choose between a woman and an African American man; one of whom may very well become the next president of these United States.

And that, children, is historical...no matter what the outcome on November 4th 2008.
