A stunning win
For the past year many people told me that America would never vote a black man into the White House. I was still hearing the same thing in the dying days of the campaign despite the polls suggesting that Barack Obama had a comfortable lead. America perhaps has finally moved beyond the civil rights battles that dominated 19th and 20th century America. He may turn out to be too Liberal, too inexperienced or too arrogant but he won't fail because he is black.
Right now Martin Luther King is looking down on us with the biggest smile. His dream has come true.
