Obama’s nomination official

Historic moment today, it will be some time before we understand where the nomination of Barack Obama ranks among major moments in the history of race relations in these United States, but it seems inarguably to be the culmination (for now) of the Civil Rights Movement.

If Obama loses the upcoming election, his mere nomination will be remembered. The emotional reaction of those in attendance reflected what the moment means to African  Americans. My meaningless support is with John McCain,* but it was still cool to see history happen live and in color (but not in Hi-Def because the CNN HD channel wasn’t working.)

*That’s what happens when you select a known, blatant plagiarist like Joe Biden as your running buddy. As a journalist, that’s an offense I can’t forgive.
