      in 2008. Regardless of how the rest of his presidency goes, just the fact of his first election was a watershed moment in our history.

      I hope he will get a coin or something eventually. Regardless of whether people agree with his politics, nobody can deny that being the first black president of a nation with such an ugly history of slavery and racism is a monumental accomplishment worthy of commemoration.
