The election of Barack Obama as President of the United States, a country equally as valued for it's symbolism as it's literal political and financial achievements, can not truiy be underscored enough. It's of a magnitude, for many reasons beyond the man himself, that equals or exceeds any movement of this past century. But though I am myself-along with a great majority of our planet-overwhelmed by it all, the thing that makes it all even more incredible, is the stoic reserve with which the man himself has accepted his historic rise and ultimate victory.
He doesn't view it as we do. Sure, he understands the impact his aacendence has had. But this was not his ultimate destination. It is simply (albeit spectacularly so) a necessary vehicle to our national, and perhaps international transformation. Or so I hope.
Ok then. Back into the studio Mr. DiLego.
