This isn't a political blog, so I'll keep this very short. I'm proud of the U.S. to have finally put a minority candidate up for president as part of a major political party. Of course, it was win-win this year since either an African American or a woman has been guaranteed for some time to win the Democratic nomination. Either way, it's a major milestone for Americans. The fact that such a huge number of voters came out for the primaries tells us that there is, finally, less attention being paid to these irrelevant gender and race issues.
