The Presidential Race

We are surely witnessing history today in our country, in that whatever party wins the White House, it will be a wonderful change from over two centuries of Caucasian men being the only ones to hold the august office of president or vice president; and that is a very good thing for us, for our children and for the great and vibrant idea of America as the melting pot of the world.

This significant change in our country’s history is not being mentioned much with the conflict-oriented management of each of the political races and the media-driven reporting that seeks to focus on that which is negative about the candidates rather than that which is positive; and as in all things of this sort, we hope that at some point the public discussion will focus on what is good for the country, as that is the only barometer worth measuring when selecting who it is we hope secures the office of president and vice-president.
