President Obama. President Obama. President Obama. It’ll take some time to get used to saying, but it sounds good, doesn’t it?
In his Inaugural Speech, Barack Obama mentioned restoring science “to it’s rightful place”. Woot, woot!!
He also mentioned non-believers. *I felt so included!*
I know some of you might be sick of hearing this, but we’ve come a looooooong way. An African American as president? That’s kind of awesome. Maybe we can overcome other differences in the future. It won’t be long before we see a woman president, for example. Hillary Clinton got close – and though Sarah Palin might not be my first choice of a good example, look how close she got. No, that door has definitely been opened for women.
So what other things do you think we’ll see in the future? Chinese-American president? Hispanic-American president? Jewish president? A robot president? (And how cool – not to mention scary – would a robot prez be??)
And as much as I wish it could happen, the chances for an Atheist president don’t look so good…even with all this “change” going on.
So to sum it all up:
Has anything really changed? For the better? Do you think other races/religions still have a way to go to overcome discrimination, or do you think that everyone now has an equal chance to become president of the US?
