Generational difference. My reaction? A big step yet not such a huge deal. I understand it's a big deal from an American social history standpoint - I get it and celebrate it - but from a personal life history, I grew up with black star athletes, entertainers, mayors and other politicians, highest ranking military officers, CEOs, etc..

Most significantly and recently, Bush's two Secretaries of State, the US face to the world only second to the President, in a time of great global intensity have been black.

A black President is a big step but not a leap. Our culture, most recently the current President, prepared the way for it.
