Just think of it.
Our last President, meaning our current one, the first black President of the United States.
I wish I'd had the presence of mind a friend of mine had when he was first elected. He and his wife knew they wanted to be on hand for the acceptance speech in Chicago that November.
Now we're on the cusp of electing either the first woman President or the first Jewish, Democratic Socialist.
And some people say our best days are behind us.
