The Color of Royalty

It has taken me a while to get around to talking about Barack Obama winning the Democratic presidential nomination (and the pound heard around the world) but it's only because I have been so busy reading the reactions to this historic event - to borrow the phrase CNN used ad nauseam on Tuesday. Words cannot begin to describe how happy I am that it actually did happen. Granted we all knew it was inevitable, but when the moment actually came, it was without a doubt the biggest triumph of my lifetime. It seems that everyone, except Hillary, was excited for the news and it is for good reason.

I for one am doubly excited - not only as an American but as a Kenyan as well. I know that this is only the beginning of the race, but we have come so far and winning the nomination is a milestone in and of itself.

I just can't wait to see what heights the Obamas will bring us to. Not only politically, but sartorially as well. I'm even eager enough to tune into The View.
