Not sure if (justifiable) politicsfilter objections trump history in the making, but I don't know whether this merits an FPP or not. Hence it seems legit for MetaTalk, even if only to get a moderator to rule on whether we can have what I think will be an FPP comment thread for the ages. But dammit, Barack Obama, the son of a Kenyan immigrant and a Kansas farm girl, is about to be the nominee of the Democratic party for president of the US of Doggone A, and it is a moment worthy of of being marked and reflected upon for many in this community, I am sure, regardless of our political commitments.

It really doesn't, but thanks for checking.

Uh huh. While another older, better qualified woman gets tossed to the sidelines. Yep. For the ages, that.

Heh, this is going to go well, I can tell.

Why post this here? I guarantee you somebody will make a one link news post the second the major networks declare Obama the nominee in an hour or two. And I wager that somebody else will post a much better and more fleshed out post on the same subject 15 or 20 minutes later. With luck it is the first that will be deleted.

So now we have a third thread.

MeTa is not for trying out MeFi posts. Go to MeFi if you think it's worth it; this sort of thing is tiresome.
